A sum of EUR 1 million is allocated for the budget to be shared between eight major districts.
Meadows to the outskirts of the city
Summary of the plan
Our planet is currently facing an eco-crisis, there is an especially sharp decline in the number of insects. Fortunately, something can be done literally at the grassroots level.
The City of Turku is starting to actively create meadows to the outskirts of the city. Especially upstream River Aura, as well as in my own district of Halinen, there are plenty of different wastelands, unused fields, and so on, that are turned into meadows.
Major area/Exact location
Upstream of River Aura
Beautiful things to see for all residents
The large flowering meadows are not only beautiful and increase the attractiveness of the areas, they are a new habitat for numerous insects and other animals. This, in turn, is positively reflected in the biota and flora of the city and surrounding areas.
Communities and people involved in the implementation
Urban Environment Division
Possible resident cooperation in the next few years, e.g. Park sponsor activities / Reaping
