Sustainability, waste avoidance and environmental protection have long since left their boring "eco" image behind. Today, strategies for conscious living are increasingly in vogue, across all generations. Sharing things with each other becomes more and more common.
More and more people are moving into cities. Urban space is becoming more and more dense and expansive. In times of climate change and traffic collapse, inhabitants are facing major challenges: heat, heavy rain, particulate matter, waste. There are many projects on how to bring nature to the city: Green roofs, planted house facades and flowering traffic islands make life in the city healthier, more social and more livable.
