Malaga cleaning up its act
• The city's green spaces will be made bigger, so they absorb more carbon dioxide
MALAGA town hall is to lead a 2.5 billion euro European initiative to improve air quality in cities.
The city’s Breathing Oxygen programme aims to reduce the health risks associated with high carbon dioxide emission levels.
The euro plan consists of maximising carbon dioxide absorption by green spaces, by making them bigger and introducing a wider range of flowers.
It is hoped this will slow the ‘urban heat island’ effect, when city air is warmer than that of surrounding areas.
The project, mostly funded by the EU, will be carried out in two phases from 2013 to 2014.
