Urbanisation and climate change call for new solutions to maintain and improve the quality of life in our cities. Public green space has a positive effect on biodiversity, climate, wellness and air quality. This impact ensures that cities are becoming better places to live and work. ‘Green Cities for a Sustainable Europe´ is a platform that encourages the greening of public spaces by providing innovative ideas, information based on scientific research, and technical expertise. Its activities address certain themes: health, climate, the economy, biodiversity and social cohesion.

Origins

Green Cities for a Sustainable Europe was launched by the ENA (European Nurserystock Association) and nursery organisations in Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, England, France, Germany and The Netherlands.
In the UK, Green Cities for a Sustainable Europe is run by the Green Infrastructure Partnership.
