Second Special Trip “My Green City”
On 4th November, the second special trip of the DRESDEN-concept Science Tram took place and demonstrated “My Green City and Me”. About 60 citizens of Dresden with an interest in the topics conversed with our experts from TU Dresden, the Deutsches Hygiene Museum and Leibniz Institute for Ecological Spatial Development (IÖR). The discussed the use of green spaces in Dresden, favourite plants, and hot summers in the city. The event was moderated by Hendrikje Wehnert from the IÖR.
Valeri Goldberg from the Chair of Meteorology at TU Dresden then presented his research on thermal radiation in cities. He discussed with the participants about knowledge and misunderstandings about the climate in cities and the contribution that green spaces of different sizes can make.
The expert Kerstin Krellenberg from the IÖR and her team pose the question as to what motivates people to visit green spaces as part of the project “meinGrün”. Together with the participants of the special trip, they discussed which freely accessible green spaces are known in the city and which needs they should meet. The institute is developing an app to make information about urban green spaces easily accessible. Sports enthusiasts will be able to find the best running tracks in the nearby park, young families will be able to find a green playground for football matches and relaxation.
