Climate change is a global challenge and the effects on everyday life are increasingly felt throughout the world. Urban parks and natural areas play a significant role in cities’ resilience to extreme weather events, their capacity to mitigate greenhouse gases, and in people’s awareness of the causes and effects of climate change. This webinar/lecture takes the City of León Mexico and its largest urban park, Metropolitan Park of León, as a case study of how urban parks can be linked to the adaptation, mitigation and education on climate change in emerging cities.
