Renaturing: Why bringing back the green can solve urban problems (video in Maltese)
Bringing nature back to our towns through innovative infrastructures like green walls, green roofs, water retention ponds and the planting of trees can help us solve everyday problems ranging from heavy flooding to high temperatures, while also restoring community ties and mental well-being.
ReNature project coordinator and senior lecturer at the Institute of Applied Sciences of the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) Mario Balzan explains the benefits of nature-based solutions and what the next steps towards green future are.
