Berlin is one of the cities, aligned with the URBES - Urban Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services project. This project aims to bridge the knowledge gap on the links between urbanization, ecosystem services and biodiversity. It develops ideas, tools and knowledge for a sustainable urban life, which are co-created and shared throughout European cities.
Berlin is one of the greenest cities in Europe, with more than 2,500 public green spaces, parks and gardens. These areas provide a home for natural diversity and a high quality of life for citizens. Berlin has developed several policies for enhancing its green areas, which include a landscape strategy, an urban development plan for climate and a biodiversity strategy.
