  • Why Green Factor?

    Today, more than 50% of the world's population lives in cities. In the realm of adapting and mitigating the negative effects of climate change, cities can be major drivers of change. Therefore, we need to rethink the entire planning approach.

    Due to excessive building in the last twenty years, there is less than 5% of green space in the city of Novi Sad today. If we compare it to the previous 30%, and the required European minimum of 20%, the data is rather alarming.

    The Green Factor is an essential instrument for improving living conditions in our cities.
