Parques&Sociedade #9


One of the roles played by parks and other urban green areas is promoting social cohesion. This edition of Parques&Sociedade brings a study that seeks to understand how these areas can foster social relationships and how the environments and structures available in these spaces influence interactions between people. Based on the use of quantitative and qualitative research methods applied to visitors to an urban park in China, the study sheds light on the relevance of urban green areas for social interactions and the importance of considering this factor in the planning and implementation stages for those spaces.
