The magic of public places

Green, climate-ready public spaces are essential for the health of people and our planet.

When public spaces are designed with nature at their core, they become the roots of a strong community. Did you know they’re proven to increase:

  • People’s physical and mental wellbeing
  • Social cohesion within communities
  • A city’s resilience to natural disasters
  • The biodiversity of urban ecosystems

Now, more than ever, these places are critical to the health and wellbeing of people and our planet as we strive for a better world for generations to come.
