To the city talk in the city talk in the climate cafe the alliance invites a livable city - green Bremen, in which also the bdla N B is partner and LiF - life in Findorf with the climate zone Bremen-Findorf.

Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Klimacafe, Münchener Straße 146, beginning at 6:30 pm.

Our trees in the city have a great importance for the quality of living and life. Trees clean the air, produce oxygen and provide shade. They improve the urban climate, increase humidity and cool their surroundings - this is of enormous importance in times of climate change. Larger and older trees in particular have a positive effect on their environment. But in cities, trees have to contend with special challenges: sealed surfaces, pollution, heat, drought, road salt and disease. Construction work often results in trees being damaged or felled, and climate change is increasing the pressure on urban trees. In Bremen, a dramatic loss of old trees is imminent. What can be done to prevent the further loss of old trees in particular? How can young trees be allowed to grow old today? And how can tree protection in Bremen be improved?

Answers to these questions will be given by Dietmar Zacharias, Professor of Applied and Ecological Botany at Bremen University of Applied Sciences, in conversation with Ulf Jacob, spokesman for the Bündnis lebenswerte Stadt and member of the Findorff Advisory Council.

Participation is free of charge.
