Agence pour l’Environnement et la Maîtrise de l’Energie (ADEME)

The 20 factsheets in the collection « demain MON TERRITOIRE » have been designed to give candidates and elected officials practical keys to take action, to open up the field of possibilities based on the experiences of other elected officials, from small towns to conurbations, large urban areas or sparsely populated areas. In the four corners of France, both in metropolitan France and in the French Overseas Territories, many of them are taking action, together with the players in their territories, to prepare for the future by taking action to mitigate climate change and adapt to its effects. With its knowledge and presence throughout the country, ADEME supports them with its tools, activities and financial aid.

Why is it important to give more space to nature in the city?

To vegetalise our neighbourhoods Oxygenate, provide well-being and freshness, preserve biodiversity and air quality, be a source of local food… These actions are as many small green lungs for our neighbourhoods, beneficial for the environment, the quality of life, the health of the inhabitants and the attractiveness of the city.

How do you do it?
