Cities around the world are depaving their streets to bring back plants and soil

Cities such as Portland in the US, London in the UK or Leuven in Belgium are embracing "depavement" of their roads, digging up concrete to let the soil underneath breath and welcome more vegetation.

    Love this trend of #Depaving cities! Less concrete means more room for trees and plants.

          By removing concrete and allowing soil and vegetation to thrive, these cities are not only beautifying their streetscapes but also promoting biodiversity and improving air quality.

              This is a great initiative!! This innovative approach not only enhances the urban environment but also promotes biodiversity and mitigates the impact of urbanization on ecosystems.
