What are Urban Green Spaces?

Urban Green Spaces are areas within a city, such as a park, rooftop garden, or woodland that have plenty of vegetation to absorbs CO2 and provide shade to the ground. There is added benefit from Evapotranspiration too.

Evapotranspiration happens when plants “breathe”, i.e. the moisture they produce from their leaves that is released back into the air. Although 1 plant only provides a small benefit, many plants together can make a huge difference to the space around them.

Trees provide a natural screen from direct sunlight by providing shaded areas, and meadows insulate the soil, keeping moisture in and temperatures down. This is why on a hot summer day if you sit on a lawn it is far cooler than if you sit on a patio.
