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, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Sweden.

In Ireland, Green Cities for a Sustainable Europe is run by DHR Communications.
