Full Text:

“Madrid is currently building a green wall around the city in order to help fight against climate change and pollution. The wall is set to cover roughly 75-kilometres and include half a million new trees.
Madrid’s councillor for environment and urban development, with this project, is attempting to improve the air quality of the entire city. He wants to fight the “heat island” effect that is happening inside the city which occurs when structures within a city absorb and re-emit the sun’s heat.
Desertification is slowly approaching southern Europe. The urban forest in Madrid intends to be both a mitigation and adaptation measure in the face of climate change.
This project will utilize derelict areas that are in-between roads and buildings and is estimated to absorb 175,000 tons of carbon dioxide each year. It will make use of indigenous trees which absorb CO2 and heat generated by human activity. In the shade of these trees, temperatures are 2 degrees lower.
Part of Madrid’s goal is reducing car use, increasing pedestrianisation and promoting a new green culture, all of which will be necessary for a sustainable future.
Around the world, cities consume approximately two-thirds of the global energy supply while generating about three-quarters of its greenhouse emissions.
Restricting traffic, promoting cycling and public transport, and planting trees are simple ways to reduce the energy consumption that contributes to the heat island effect. Cities will be the most affected by climate change, but they are also an essential part of the solution.”
