As BSP brilliantly put it on their blog, this photograph reflects the citizen taking action into their own hand: ”No green space? No problem – I’ll create it on my balcony!”

Great shot Tina! Stay tuned for our selection of trees in the city.

 

Check out this inforgraphic and study  by The Youth Economic Forum pushing stakeholders to vote for green policies to include “Pocket gardens” in highly populated areas.

Let’s take matters in our own hands. Do you live in a cluster of buildings with a potential space for a garden in the middle? Talk about it with your neighbors for a possibility of having a garden space for the buildings!
