Starting a project Snina the city that is ready for climate change

By signing and publishing a project agreement with the Ministry of the Environment of the Slovak Republic, the City of Snina was able to start activities for the implementation of the project “Snina – a city ready for climate change”, whose main goal is to implement adaptive measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change in Snina.

The project is an exceptional range of new investment adaptive measures in the action plan, revitalization of parks, flood measures on urban areas, reconstruction of buildings and public spaces in harmony with nature, energy efficient and smart solutions, publicity and outreach activities.

  • New central climate park and revitalization of two city parks.
  • Biotechnical revitalization of the main square by increasing the share of green vegetation, placement of water elements and elements of small architecture.
  • Installation of three large green roofs on the buildings of the kindergartens of Dukelských hrdinov, Perečínska a 1. mája.
  • Thermal insulation of external walls, roofs and cladding of four public buildings.
  • Implementation of rain gardens in six areas of public buildings, as well as in the inter-block courtyards of the Kukučínova, 1. mája a Komenského housing estates.
  • Reconstruction of public lighting RVO 07 on Jesenského street.
  • Construction of a charging station for electric cars, as well as charging stations for electric bicycles.
  • Implementation of a flood protection measure for a dry polder on the Tarnavský stream.
  • Planting of new tree alleys and tree lines.

The project will be implemented thanks to co-financing from Norwegian grants and the state budget of the Slovak Republic. The city of Snina itself will also contribute financially to the project, as well as the partner of the project Roman catholic parish Povýšenia Svätého kríža in Snine. The project partner is also the Norway Institute for Bioeconomics, which together with the city will participate in the implementation of the action plan.

The course of the project we will regularly inform through, social networks, a new website or print media reports. We also want to support information and awareness of the project through three conferences, information leaflets, a documentary book and a film, as well as information boards at the project implementation sites.
