The City of Helsingborg has planted just over 18,000 trees and 60 different species in two years
Helsingborg was one of six cities chosen to start the Trees in Cities Challenge in autumn 2019, and in the first two years has succeeded in planting more than 18,000 trees and some 60 species. In doing so, the city is contributing to a better climate in the long run.
“Our participation in the UN’s initiative has great symbolic value and is important on a global level, but it is even more important for us here locally. We are contributing in a real way to a better climate and a higher quality of life for the people of Helsingborg in so many respects. Here we are really thinking long term for future generations,” says Mayor of Helsingborg Peter Danielsson.
The city’s tree planting projects are part of H22, Helsingborg’s major innovation and welfare initiative to develop future solutions that improve quality of life in a smarter, more sustainable city. On 30 May-3 July 2022, Helsingborg invites the world to explore and develop sustainable and innovative solutions during the international event H22 City Expo.
