SUSHI project departs from an holistic approach to address common challenges already identified in historic districts of six cities from five EU Mediterranean countries [Lisboa (PT), Valletta (MT), Savona (IT), Ptuj (SI), Nicosia (CY), and Sassari (IT)] to work, within a shared framework, to change their historic districts towards more sustainable, climate resilient and inclusive ones, through innovative integrated solutions and social change.
29 months from 20/07/2018 to 31/12/2020
SUSHI aims to demonstrate how a collaborative approach to taking integrated action in the 6 cities for systemic change will deliver innovation through social change towards sustainability and climate change mitigation and resilience.

- Improve and consolidate the role of the PUA (Urban Parternship for Adaptation) in promoting adaptation options.
SASSARI’s main objectives are:
- Create a network among the academic world, professionals, citizens, companies and the civil society in Sassari to develop strategies for innovative urban green solutions;
- Improve green infrastructures and promote urban regeneration inside the historical city center, to (i) identify new opportunities for individual and collective changes related to more accessible and usable spaces; (ii) elaborate new options and valuable functions according to criteria of environmental compatibility and functionality; (iii) foster sustainable urban transformations through the redefinition of public spaces, the urban social life, and a sustainable tourism.
