Study on the use of urban green spaces

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of urban green spaces in cities around the world. Parks, playgrounds, gardens and other urban green spaces provide several well-being benefits, as they help reducing stress, stimulating cognitive function, enhancing social cohesion, and supporting physical activity. Information on the perception and use of urban green spaces is important for cities, both when coping with the current health crisis as well as when planning future urban development.

The UNaLab project, in which ERRIN is a partner, is conducting a study on how people generally perceive and use urban green spaces, and how these use patterns have changed due to the COVID-19 situation. The results of this study will contribute to the design of urban green spaces to satisfy the needs of all urban citizens.

Answering the survey requires about 15 minutes and it is available in ten different languages.
