So urban greening is city greening

Green spaces are considered to be essential to people's quality of life and, in developed countries at least, there is a move towards increasing the amount and quality of green spaces within cities.

This is being achieved by various means including:

  • Creating rooftop green spaces
  • Using canals and rivers as breeding sites for birds
  • Ensuring that new building projects include green spaces
  • Planting many more trees

Urban greening has been shown to help combat air and noise pollution; soak up rainwater that may otherwise create flooding; create a habitat for local wildlife; and lift morale in the people who see it.
