Green spots spreading in the concrete jungle
Let’s explore the potential of urban climate adaptation in Terézváros. Green walls, streets and roofs instead of parking lots and concrete? If you don’t believe it’s possible, join this WS and see for yourself.
Terézváros is highly committed to reaching its climate goals by 2030. That is why they signed and joined the Covenant of Mayors and developed their SECAP in 2020. The local decision-makers and experts are implementing the measures (written in the SECAP) step by step. So, besides these tangible results, you will also learn many useful and practical background information which may help you replicate these ideas at your municipalities as well.
