Green city

In an era of climate crisis, it is difficult to overestimate the role of greenery in the city. We need it like oxygen. How to use it most effectively, make it perform ecosystem services, why the fourth nature is so important, how much a tree earns - we discuss all this at great length in this issue. We also ask Carlos Morena, advisor to the Mayor of Paris, about the most effective ways to implement the fifteen-minute city, and Carolyn Steel, an architect recognized by The Ecologist magazine as one of the most important minds of the 21st century, about the importance of sitopia, or the edible city.

We live in an age of knowledge, we have access to the latest research, we know how to organize our cities to improve the quality of life in them, but often the economic and legal systems have not kept up with this knowledge. The world has accelerated, the pace of life is dizzying, changing contexts are overturning old systems, so we need innovative approaches all the more. Are we ready for this yet? Perhaps we are! Carolyn Steel, in an interview with Edyta Skiba, said: "I think that like never before we need an alternative economic system built on socially valued activities, providing space to share time with another person close to us, to be close to nature." With this it is impossible to argue - we need proximity to nature.

And we talk about it in this issue.
