Citizenship for bees, plants and trees ?

‘Sweet City’: the Costa Rica suburb that gave citizenship to bees, plants and trees”.

Interesting initiative from #Costarica Costa Rica story-told brilliantly (as usual) by The Guardian.

“A suburb of the country’s capital is showing how urban planning can be harnessed to benefit both humans and wildlife.


“Pollinators are the consultants of the natural world, supreme reproducers and they don’t charge for it. The plan to convert every street into a biocorridor and every neighbourhood into an ecosystem required a relationship with them”


“Inter-urban biocorridors have a double objective: they create ecological connectivity for biodiversity but also improve green infrastructure through roads and river banks lined with trees that are linked with the small forested areas that still exist in metropolitan areas.”
