The Champs Elysée Boulevard will be transformed into a greener environment. The goal is to transform the boulevard into a more ecological, desirable and attractive environment.
In the implementation of the project, as many areas as possible will be converted into green areas. The number of parking spaces will be cut in half, car roads will be converted into walkways and rows of trees will be planted alongside the old elms that already stand there. The elms are fighting for their survival in the polluted air.
Time Magazine writes that Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo in her election campaign placed great emphasis on the goal of reducing car traffic in the capital. Hidalgo says that her vision for Paris is a green city where everyone can breathe fresh air and enjoy parks and green areas.
Wherever possible - in road areas, squares and playgrounds - the asphalt will be removed to make room for nature. With tree planting programs, real "urban forests" will act as lungs for neighbourhoods around the city. The area around the Eiffel Tower will also be developed into an extraordinary park.
The new green areas contribute to sustainable biodiversity since they have fruit trees and plants that are native to France.
