RESZ - Verbundvorhaben: GartenLeistungen - Urbane Gärten und Parks: Multidimensionale Leistungen für ein sozial, ökologisch und ökonomisch nachhaltiges Flächen- und Stoffstrommanagement - Teilvorhaben 3: Stadtklima

Eleven partners are working together in the "GartenLeistungen" project to investigate the significance and value of public green spaces for sustainable urban development and to record the diverse services provided by gardens and parks to urban society.
Green spaces in the city fulfil many functions: In addition to providing a habitat for urban animals and a recreational area for people, urban greenery regulates the run-off of precipitation and the formation of groundwater. In addition, green spaces have a positive effect on the urban climate by improving thermal comfort and contributing to the reduction of heat stress risks by producing cold air.
