Parques&Sociedade #6


How do urban green areas impact health and well-being in cities? To reflect on this topic, this issue of Parques&Sociedade brings a study based on a literature review consisting of works on this theme carried out in America, Asia, Europe, and Australia. Based on a classification of these materials, the study presents a relevant mapping of the effects of urban green areas on various aspects related to the quality of life in metropolises, such as climate, health promotion, and social cohesion. We hope this study can inspire the framing of municipal policies aimed at increasing and qualifying green spaces in cities.
