Green spaces are a great benefit to our health and environment. They filter pollutants and dust from the air, they provide shade and lower temperatures in urban areas, and they even reduce erosion of soil into our waterways. Research has found that green spaces are also good for mental health, increasing social interactions and even encouraging healthy exercise. Why not create a sanctuary for students to relax in an urban landscape by upgrading or reclaiming a wasteland area of your school? Add an anti-litter and waste element by using recycled waste materials which will save your school money as well as doing your bit to go green.
