Shibuya Greening Project – 「街をきれいに！」
Without creating a sense of ownership (and appropriate choice of plants), attachment and care cannot develop and the result is a dry, sad stretch of sidewalk planters.
Contrast this with the verdant canopy above the same street and the rich, colorful and delicious residential gardens just off the main roads in a similar area.
Can you find some examples of recent and successful official sidewalk greening/beautifying projects?
How can cities facilitate more care for and attachment to official projects?
