Save a tree! Activism for green cities

In a pandemic and climate crisis, care for the health of citizens should come first, and urban green infrastructure should become a central theme for urban development. Why does this not happen, and we observe only mass pruning and cutting down of trees? Activists from different cities will share their experience of how they are fighting for the implementation of a systematic approach to urban green, and will discuss what citizens can do on their own right now.
