New Blog: Preserving and Creating Green Space
Why do we need urban green spaces? A new study by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences addressed that question from a scientific and evidence-based perspective. It pointed out that the percentage of people living in urban centers is expected to increase from 50% in 2010 to nearly 70% by 2050, resulting in what the study calls densiﬁcation. It goes on to say: “As migration to urban areas is ongoing globally, the need for sustainable urban development is becoming increasingly important. In an urban context this implies creation of both resource efﬁcient systems and good, engaging urban design for attractive cities with good quality of life."
