Green City lecture in Budapest
The ‘Green City Seminar’ was held in the Hortus Hongaricus in Budapest. Niek spoke about the benefits of green and explained how The Green City Guidelines can be applied in the urban context. He used the design of a new city district in China to illustrate this. He showed that by laying a grid of green over the urban plan, a green norm of 30m2 per resident can be distributed so that everyone has access to adequate street green, neighbourhood green, community parks, city parks and recreational zones.
