The AIPH Green City December briefing has featured the winner of the ‘Living Green for Climate Change’ category of the AIPH World Green City Awards 2022: Mexico City, Mexico.

As climate change increases pressure and challenges for cities worldwide, this session focuses on strategies that promote the power of plants in creating adapted and resilient urban environments.

Mexico City, who presented at the Green City Briefings, has been inspired to sow parks for its citizens, native wildlife and future generations. Thanks to the Green Challenge, the increase in the annual production of plants went from less than 500 thousand in 2018 to more than 10 million in 2021, which has resulted in the planting of over 34,000,000 trees and plants.

Ecostack Innovations was also present at this session, where we presented ongoing work on nature-based solutions and placemaking. Dr Mario Balzan described the work implemented in the ReCreate project, during which we have brought communities together to co-create green spaces and improve the quality of these spaces by working with artists and architects.
