Max Fabiani Award 2021

The LUR Green Infrastructure Strategy wins Max Fabiani Commendation

The Association of Urban Planners and Spatial Planners of Slovenia awarded the LUR Green Infrastructure Strategy the Maks Fabiani Award 2021. The authors of the strategy are Gaja Trbižan and Matej Gojčič (both from RRA LUR) and Petra Vertelj Nared, Urška Kranjc, Karla Jankovič, and Vita Rehberger (all from LUZ d.d.).

The strategy, developed within the EU project PERFECT, defines the vision, protection and development objectives, typology of regional green infrastructure, and measures for implementation (action plan). The document was created through an integrated planning approach and linking spatial planning with the development and protection aspects of green infrastructure: encompassing nature and environmental protection, resource management, space development and management, social development, the creation of a healthier living environment, economic development, and climate change management.

A key aspect of the strategy’s preparation was a participatory approach, involving crucial stakeholders at municipal, regional, and national levels, particularly LUR municipalities, professional services, and research institutions.

The jury members emphasized that the awarded works should serve as examples of exceptionally high-quality planning and urban planning practices, setting a standard for planners, developers, and clients, particularly in addressing the most critical planning and urban challenges of modern times. Given the increasing importance of green infrastructure in the context of climate change, demographic shifts, lifestyle changes, and urbanization, the design of the region’s green system will be a key focus in regional spatial plans and the new spatial acts introduced by the current Spatial Planning Act (ZureP-2). The LUR regional spatial plan aims to bridge the gap between national and local planning levels and will be a primary responsibility for RRA LUR in the coming period.
