Engaging the community is the biggest challenge that councils face in urban greening. This is the ultimate community kit to help with that. Includes: research; free customisable ad kit including posters, social media posts and short videos that can be customised to tell your residents why urban greening improves their lives.
Cool Streets© combines scientific research and public engagement, working with local communities to implement effective street tree plantings that provide shade in heat-affected urban areas and reduce CO2 emissions. Cools Streets© grew from Dr Libby Gallagher’s research into the potential of streets to tackle climate change. Libby’s research found that a few simple changes to a street design could reduce CO2 emissions, cool neighbourhoods and reduce electricity bills for residents. Cool Streets© provides a practical way for people to take action. Residents, community groups, schools, councils, housing corporations and developers can get involved and achieve environmental, economic and social benefits for their local area.
Plants and trees. They can make a development amazing, but it’s not as easy as just designing them in. All stakeholders need to be brought along on the journey. This guide explores five developments which use green space in a big way, then outlines the stories and narratives used to get various stakeholders across the line.
This discussion guide explores the working relationship between green space practitioners and engineers, including barriers to collaboration between these two groups, and ways they can be overcome.
The Hort Frontiers Green Cities Fund brings together a range of partners to research and demonstrate the benefits of increased urban greening. With the Australian urban population increasing, and the health benefits of green space becoming clearer, urban developers and governments are becoming increasingly interested in creating greener communities. However, the impact of green space on a range of aspects (for example, perinatal health outcomes and hospital admissions) needs further research. The Green Cities Fund aims to help uncover science-based answers to these questions, helping inform urban development business decisions.
