2023 city idea. Take a leaf from Leeuwarden. Actually take a tree, 1000 of them and let’s follow their ‘walking forest’ initiative which has just finished.
Bosk, Dutch for a small wooded area, sees a a different part of the city centre of Leeuwarden coloured green over 100 days.
“There are all sorts of things going on in the walking forest, it’s always dynamic. Residents, enterprises and local and international artists will all contribute. The forest will play with your senses and thanks to a dedicated team of hundreds of volunteers it will create a new network of interconnected roots.”
At the end, the trees were planted around the city, including in low-income neighbourhoods, where greenery is scarce. Surely this is a low-hanging branch for a renewable energy provider to get behind in terms of sponsorship also.
Do it, please!
We’re on board already.
