Role in programme(s):
Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism
The City of Athens is adding to this momentum by adapting our infrastructure to climate change while promoting sustainable development. This strategy includes a series of interventions that will upgrade and reshape the city’s image from the ground up, with the participation of our residents, businesses, and global partners. It’s also part of our plan to develop, keep, and recruit talent. We are investing to improve access to city services and upgrading our foundations to become more resilient. We are reconstructing our sidewalks and streets, expanding our walking and biking paths, and adding to our green canopy to get fresh and cool air circulating throughout the city. We are creating the first new parks in generations, including tiny “pocket parks” that are creating open space in the middle of our dense urban fabric.
