We are not particularly interested in those who have already self-selected into environmental programs. They will already be informed and will learn more. No, it is […]


Urban greening can reduce impact of global heating in cities

Urban greening initiatives such as planting street trees, rainwater gardens and de-paving can help mitigate the impacts of urban heating due to the climate crisis and urban expansion, according to a study that has found cities have been warming by 0.5C a decade on average.
