Green space with trees
Find out more about how multifunctional vegetation affects our daily life. Green spaces with trees help with water retention and runoff, contain valuable shelter for insects and birds, and reduce temperature through evapotranspiration while providing shadow. For example, in the urban forest, we can find natural shelter and rest for our eyes in the city.
Green space with trees reduce air pollution in the city. According to WHO Environment and Health Information System and their guidelines for air pollution, more than 80% of the population in European cities are exposed to exceeded levels of air pollution (PM10) levels.
Green spaces with trees can mitigate high temperatures in dense city areas. Green spaces can be 0.94°C cooler than grey areas of the city.
