CLICK TO READ SPEAKER’S BIOGRAPHY:
The city of Malmö is known in Sweden as the city of parks. Early on the officials of Malmö realized the benefits of creating large green high quality parks in the center of the city. Today as the city grows there is an ongoing discussion about a future involving both densifying ambitions and securing both old and new green areas. There are several reasons for investing in new parks and green areas. The presentation will cover many of these. Mr. Melin will also discuss the benefits in general that comes from planning and building green environments in urban areas.
Can green roofing and green walls compensate for smaller parks and green areas? No, we need to do both. This seminar is an introduction to Malmö and to Malmö’s challenges concerning the use, access and development of green space in a future context.
The powerpoint presentation will be uploaded here shortly.
