On the evening of 19 March 2019, the second Parliamentary Evening jointly held by four Green associations took place at the German Parliamentary Society in Berlin.

Under the title "Green - For Town and Country", the Bundesverband Garten-, Landschafts- und Sportplatzbau e. V. (BGL), the Association of German Landscape Architects (bdla), the Association of German Nurseries (BdB) e.V. and the Central Horticultural Association (ZVG). (ZVG) and the association representatives were able to welcome over 20 members of the German Bundestag, state secretaries and employees of the federal ministries.

The aim of the green sector associations was to discuss the challenges of climate change with the attending members of the Bundestag, in particular the extent to which a green infrastructure with sufficient urban greenery could make cities more climate change-proof. In her welcoming address, the Chairwoman of the Building Committee of the German Bundestag, Mechthild Heil MdB, emphasized the importance of designed greenery for an attractive and healthy living and residential environment. In view of the expected short and medium-term climatic changes, the presidents of the associations, Lutze von Wurmb (BGL), Till Rehwaldt (bdla), Helmut Selders (BdB) and Jürgen Mertz (ZVG), provided information on the solution potential of green cities and landscapes.

The intensive and constructive exchange with the representatives from politics and ministries showed that the green sector with its know-how has a central role to play in meeting the challenges of climate change and that the "green city" is the model of the future.
