Forests perform a vital function for #nature conservation and #climateprotection 🌿🐿🌱. That’s why the federal state of #Berlin supports many different activities and projects that teach children in schools and daycare how important forests really are. These include, for instance, an educational forest trail in #Grunewald and the outdoor exhibition “Wald.Berlin.Klima. (Forest.Berlin.Climate.). To ensure that Berlin continues to be one of the world’s greenest #cities, donations to fund the planting of new #trees have been collected since 2012 with the goal of keeping the city’s large number of trees (around 440,000) stable. So far, the campaign has made it possible to plant and care for around 8200 new trees. These improve #air quality in the city and offer protection from #sun and #wind. We loved having the opportunity to take over the C40 Instagram account and take you on a week-long tour of exciting Berlin. We hope that our many climate protection projects have given you some #inspiration. You’re welcome in Berlin anytime if you’d like to see these projects for yourself and enjoy Berlin’s attitude toward life. Good-bye! 👋🏻 . . . . .
