Parques&Sociedade #11


The Covid-19 pandemic has shed light on an important theme of urban agenda: the need to think about ways to facilitate access and implementation of squares, gardens, parks and urban green spaces. This edition of Parques&Sociedade brings a study that investigates how the pandemic context can be an opportunity for green infrastructure to be considered by decision-makers in the urban planning and management. Based on policies and experiences in the United Kingdom, the authors build five statements so that public managers ponder green spaces as essential for urban development and to promote public health.
