Rain gardens for safer and climate resilient streets

Cities and regions are complex. We are interested in smart infrastructure solutions that address multiple issues efficiently. ​​

Rain gardens at Rundelsgatan in Vellinge

Martin Vysoky shared through our website the example of rain gardens.

What can rain gardens do?

These plant beds can retain and clean rainwater. They create a greener, more attractive urban environment, but that's not all they do!

They also lower the risk of flooding and damage from drought while they increase street safety by slowing down traffic. ​

What do you think? ​

Do you have other ideas on how we can better equip our cities to meet the challenges of the future?
