plant micro forests
To increase biodiversity: microforests need a tiny area, the size of a tennis court or 4 car parking spaces.
planted densely with native species they grow fast and have a quick impact. We have plenty of space throughout the city where this could work.
Why the contribution is important
Micro forests are said to grow 10 times faster and have 100 times the biodiversity of conventional forests. They could provide ecological corridors as well as valuable screening from noise if planted near roads. Communities could become involved in planting, looking after the saplings, preventing damage. Great projects near schools or in areas of the city that have dense housing. We urgently need them to help us meet climate goals, as well as the plan to have 30% of the planet in a natural state by 2030.
