The Mayor of Paris wished to put the issue of revegetation and the fight against noise pollution at the heart of the next Council of Paris. This paradigm shift places nature and sound calming at the heart of urban planning.
Multiplying natural spaces, by planting wherever possible, means moving from a city with gardens to a true “garden city”; a more beautiful city, but above all a fresher city that is more resilient in the face of global warming. This is what the city of Paris wants, which is launching its “Tree plan and noise plan” this week.
With 23 major commitments and around sixty measures, the Tree Plan promises to be a major turning point in favor of biodiversity, the preservation of resources and protection against natural disasters, thus creating the new rules for responsible urban planning. and sustainable.
The new plan to fight against noise pollution submitted to the Paris Council will be concerted until the end of the year via ideas.fr and via public meetings organized by the district town halls. “Noise is a major issue of public health and quality of life”, emphasizes the municipality. With this plan, the City of Paris is tackling noise pollution, which is the second environmental risk factor in Europe.
