Hi ! 

Let us develop our Gruen criteria here ! 

I think that among all the criteria listed in The Green Leaf Award, the Asian Green City Index and the European Green Capital Award , the following are the criteria which I appreciate the most :

1. Air quality

Air quality is an immediate indicator of how green is your city . Good air quality means the process of  purification of air is faster ,  indicating that it is well endowed with greenery  ~ green city . 

2. Climate Change : Mitigation 

Climate Change Mitigation refers to efforts to reduce or prevent emission of greenhouse gases. More the emission of greenhouses gases indicates lack of sustainable measures in that city and hence it hampers the process of creation of a green city . 

What do you all think over these points ? 

Regards 

URJA

hey everyone!

I'm sorry I've been inactive lately. I propose that we should make a whatsapp group first to discuss this topic with more ease and we can sum it up in the end. For this to be possible, I will need all of you to please join the whatsapp group and someone to take the initiative of making one since I am not able to make it.Share the link to the group here. It is important that each one of us proposes at least two criterias by the end of this task.

Thank you

Oishi

Hi , 

I think the following criteria is worth to work upon:


CRITERIA#4 LISTED IN THE EUROPEAN GREEN CAPITAL AWARD :

Sustainable Land Use 

Sustainable land use is a necessary building block for sustainable agricultural development, and it is a key element in AGENDA 21's goal of sustainable development .

  Sustainable land use are key objectives of the new World Bank rural investment program, and increasingly these objectives are being included in all agricultural development and natural resources management projects all over the world 

Sustainable land use has the following advantages: 

  • 1.maintain and enhance productivity
  • 2.reduce the level of production risk, and enhance soil capacity to buffer against degradation processes (stability/resilience)
  • 3.protect the potential of natural resources (protection)
  • 4.be economically viable (viability)
  • 5.be socially acceptable, and assure access to the benefits from improved land management (acceptability/equity
  • 6.Hence it surely helps in the development of a GREEN CITY

What do you suggest ?

Hi Ruhani,
