Space for Twin Cities: Green and Sustainable Cities

Cities are our future, and a better global future lies in urban innovation and action. To combat climate change, one of the main challenges is to make our cities greener and more sustainable. As the majority of future humans will live in cities, the solution to climate change will reside there too and the space sector can make a significant contribution in this respect. Urban greenery can improve air quality and promote wellbeing. ESA is working with municipal authorities to identify how space can help to create sustainable cities in which people are healthier, happier, and more productive.

 

Under the moderation of ESA Earth Observation representative Guenther Landgraf, ESA representatives Roberta Mugellesi Dow, Stefano Ferretti and Ilaria Zilioli discussed the importance of ecosystem services in urban areas together with the assessor Marzia Marchesi and William Senna from the Municipality of Bergamo, Marco Marchetti, president of Alberi Italia and Professor at the Università del Molise, together with Marcello Maranesi, chief executive officer at GMATICS.
