Green Strategy / Thessaloniki

The city of Thessaloniki is not known for large parks. However, the existing green areas, the gardens and the iconic streets contribute significantly to its character and are an integral part of its social and cultural life. The Strategy being developed for urban climate and green infrastructure is based on a vision, which aims to ensure healthy green, with diverse structure and composition, able to contribute in the most effective way to mitigating the effects of climate change. In developing this Strategy, the importance of a holistic approach to the management of an invaluable resource is recognised.

The main objective is to guide the transition to a resilient, healthy and diversified green infrastructure, in order to ensure future generations with urban green presence and vegetation able to respond to climate change, new needs and contribute by supporting health, sustainability and the well-being of the city and its residents.
