We lead global thinking on the successful integration of nature into the built environment

Through Green City we promote the essential role of plants in creating vibrant urban areas in which people and businesses can thrive. Our environment, human wellbeing, social cohesion and economies are all improved by intelligently designed green space.

Our vision

We aim to develop an international standard for green cities as well as being a focal point for green city best practice and a source of expertise.
Through world activities, research and marketing, and shared resources we seek to inspire people, organisations, city councils and government administrations to join this challenging movement and reap the benefits.

Did you know?

Already, 55% of the world’s population live in cities, and United Nation statisticians predict that this will increase to 68% by 2050.

This increase in population will require expansion in area, and in many parts of the world this will be into biodiversity hotspots. Cities need to incorporate nature as part of dedicated conservation efforts, and as part of their own sustainability and resilience.
