Build trees inside the cities too it’s great when there’s loads of greenery and shade as you walk down the road


Nice to see they are going to plant native species


I live in Madrid and these are the first news I have about this project. I’m all for it, but with the rampant corruption and all the influence peddling that we have here, and taking into account that a great part of the current right-wing government are climate deniers, I seriously doubt it ends up being developed or at least as it was originally conceived.


Unused rooftops should be converted to green spaces – I believe there’s a town in France that has done this – looks beautiful from the air.


smart idea. beautiful to imagine. want to see it with my own eyes. Greener cities receive more tourism, so could pay for itself too.
