Using the example of a former landfill site, From Brownfield to Greenspace: Sustainable Urban Land Use creates an understanding of the opportunities to convert contaminated land, called brownfields, to urban greenspaces. Through various learning experiences, students can understand what a brownfield is and how it can be remediated and converted to urban greenspace. When students plant trees and native shrubs in former wasteland, it transforms the neighbourhood. Rehabilitating disused land to create greenspaces has a positive impact on people, wildlife, communities, and the environment. Resource Guide Available.
