Green corridor in Tallinn
According to Mikhail Kylvart, by 2035 Estonia's goal is to turn Tallinn into a city that will be convenient for citizens and interesting for tourists. For this, six goals are clearly set, one of which is the creation of green corridors. Along with creating a comfortable urban space, a friendly community, a creative city, a mobile Tallinn and a home that starts from the street, the development of green corridors is an essential part of the strategy to improve and beautify Tallinn.
The implementation of the Putukaväil project has already begun: the mayor of the city, together with planners and architects, laid out a plan for the length of the green corridor, which will cover the largest districts of Tallinn, such as Põhja, Haabersti, Mustamäe and Nõmme.
Thanks to the created conditions, city residents will spend more time outdoors, and accordingly, they will lead a healthier lifestyle. A large amount of vegetation will be planted, which will help preserve the rarest species of insects that are currently on the verge of extinction.
The younger generation of Tallinn residents will learn to love and respect the laws of the wild, interact with flora and fauna, and acquire healthy habits.
By instilling in citizens a concern for nature and the preservation of valuable natural resources, it is possible to grow a conscious generation of people with the right values.
