Restoring nature to urban areas represents a mechanism for delivering environmental, social, and economic benefits. However, putting nature back into areas where nature has been marginalised throughout history represents a substantial challenge. ARENA has been supporting Green Roof Shelters in their work to restore nature into even the smallest and most high-density urban areas.
Green Roof Shelters are innovators when it comes to putting nature back into landscapes. Adopting an ecomimicry process (mimicking locally typical habitats), the Green Roof Shelters team turn ordinary everyday infrastructure, like bin covers, bicycle shelters, and freight containers, into nature-based solutions capable of supporting biodiversity.
