Bicycle ride among trees
Sun 31 May, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm BSTFree
Learning how to recognize tree species is one of the ways to increase citizens’ attachment to the green heritage of their own city. The project consists in a bicycle ride through Milan streets and parks aimed at identifying Milan “important” trees. During the whole festival, several big trees will be equipped with temporary labels provided with QR codes, connected to botanical identification cards.
The rides starts behind the Duomo, Via dell’Arcivescovado, and ends in Piazza Repubblica. When in Giardini pubblici “Indro Montanelli”, the new Municipality of Milan’s app called “Ghe Pensi Mi”, realised in collaboration with Co.Ge.S. (Consorzio Gestione Servizi), will be presented: it will allow citizens to point possible anomalies out – for the moment concerning playgrounds, dog areas and sport equipment. Through this app, people will also be able to say what they “like” the most about urban green areas. Agronomist dr. Francesca Oggionni will be leading the ride.
