Ambitious Network to Cover 40% of Hamburg in Green
"'It will connect parks, recreational areas, playgrounds, gardens and cemeteries through green paths', Angelika Fritsch, a spokeswoman for the city's department of urban planning and the environment, tells Guardian Sustainable Business. 'Other cities, including London, have green rings, but the green network will be unique in covering an area from the outskirts to the city centre. In 15 to 20 years you'll be able to explore the city exclusively on bike and foot.'"
"Perhaps more importantly, the network will absorb CO2 emissions and help prevent floods when inevitable superstorms strike," adds Braw.
