UFO: Interdisciplinary cooperation on urban greens in Aachen 

In the UFO sub-project FuEne, researchers from environmental biology and communication science are currently developing an interdisciplinary index to evaluate urban greens.

On 17th April 2014, the researchers therefore visited several green spaces in Aachen: two parks (Veltmannplatz and Elisengarten), a space used for urban gardening in Richardstraße and a private garden.

During the field trip, Alexander Wilke, Benjamin Daniels, Martina Roß-Nickoll and Barbara Zaunbrecher discussed possible ecological parameters and acceptance issues, which will be investigated in an empirical survey.
