    More than 80 percent Canadians live in cities with almost one-quarter of country’s total population living in the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) area. The GGH stretches in a curve around the western side of Lake Ontario with the City of Toronto occupying the northern side of the horseshoe. The GGH is an area of high potential food production as well as rapid population growth creating a mix of difficult to reconcile, opposing demands. For example, the need for housing and residential infrastructure conflicts directly with the need to preserve prime agricultural lands.

    Krošnje velikih stabala su prirodan filter za lebdeće čestice i štetne plinove u zraku. Jedno stablo iz atmosfere godišnje uklanja 150 kg CO2 i time doprinosi ublažavanju klimatskih promjena. Drveće pruža stanište, hranu i zaštitu ostalim biljkama i životinjama te time povećava bioraznolikost u urbanim sredinama. Sadnjom stabala danas utječemo na kvalitetu života budućih generacija!

    Τα μεγάλα αστικά δέντρα αποτελούν φίλτρα για τους αστικούς ρύπους και τα λεπτά σωματίδια. Ένα δέντρο μπορεί να απορροφήσει έως και 150 κιλά CO 2 ετησίως, να δεσμεύσει τον άνθρακα και συνεπώς να αμβλύνει την κλιματική αλλαγή. Τα δέντρα παρέχουν ενδιαίτημα, τροφή και προστασία για τα φυτά και τα ζώα, αυξάνοντας την αστική βιοποικιλότητα. Φυτεύοντας δέντρα σήμερα είναι ουσιαστικής σημασίας για τις μελλοντικές γενιές!

    Food Systems for an Urbanizing World is a joint report prepared by the World Bank and FAO. It aims to stimulate discussion and suggest pathways to support local and national governments, and civil society and private sector actors in their efforts to improve the performance and capacity of food systems. The report describes the diversity and ever-changing nature of food systems, with interlinked traditional, modern and informal channels that respond to different market segments and different consumer preferences.

    Large urban trees are excellent filters for urban pollutants and fine particulates. One tree can absorb up to 150 kg of CO2 per year, sequester carbon and consequently mitigate climate change. Trees provide habitat, food and protection to plants and animals, increasing urban biodiversity. Planting trees today is essential for future generations!
