Together with climate change, the loss of biodiversity is one of the great named crises of our time. Against this background, the UN has declared the Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. What role does urban space play in this? Our cities are developing more and more from the idea of a medieval bulwark to a real living space for their inhabitants. Animals also see an opportunity here and are migrating to the cities. What potential does a city offer as a habitat, how can cities understand and shape themselves as part of an ecosystem? Can biodiversity become an indicator for quality of life and resilience in the city? What contribution do local projects and initiatives make?
