Great Green Cities

Cities are creating new initiatives aimed at integrating more green public spaces into their center. This is due to the upcoming urbanisation: more and more people are living in the cities and are longing for gardens in their neighborhood. They want the possibility to escape from the busy and unhealthy life and built-up environment inside the city. This green area is quiet and gives people the opportunity to walk in a public (or private) garden, where they can relax.
