With this proposal (No.662), the city council instructs the magistrate to continue and expand the ongoing tree plantings in the city area so that, if possible, 10,000 trees can be planted in Frankfurt’s public spaces by 2030. This should also contribute to shading and cooling the urban climate, especially during hot summers and in overheated neighborhoods. To do this, they should continue to exclusively use site-appropriate, climate-resistant, and ecologically advantageous tree species.
Planting 10,000 New City Trees by 2030
Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
