Green areas of cities

Green areas are lungs of Ukrainian cities. They moderate microclimate, oxygenize air, neutralize motor vehicles and plant emissions, trap dust, and most significantly, they are almost the only one place to live for living beings within the cities, and make a proper environment for people rest.

Despite such a crucial contribution, green areas suffer from destructive impact of city governments, private building companies, and utility providers.

In its activity, EPL monitors illegitimate actions of city councils (particularly in Lviv and Kyiv), which are directed to the destruction of green areas, transformation of them into built-up areas, or modification of intended functions of land.
