Benefits of Urban Green Spaces (BUGS) – Versión Inglés
Cities experience increasing signs of environmental stress, notably in the form of poor air quality, excessive noise, and traffic congestion, At the same time, the pace at which land is being consumed by urban development in Europe is a major concern. The enhancement of green areas has the potential to mitigate adverse effects of urbanisation in a sustainable way, making cities more attractive to live in, reversing urban sprawl and reducing transport demand. Nowadays, there is an increasing societal support for more green space in and around cities.
