Urban green spaces have a beneficial effect on the promotion of health and the reduction of heat stress. Many stakeholders are involved with urban green spaces. These stakeholders include citizens, municipalities and provinces, each of which have their own goals and resources. Stakeholders require a perspective for action to ensure an optimum, efficient realisation of urban green spaces. This project focuses on getting more green space in the city and focuses on the role and responsibilities of governments with regards to businesses and citizens. In 2015/2016, a dialogue tool was developed based on transition theory to realise more green in the city. This tool supports stakeholders in identifying their role and provides perspective for action. Application of this instrument (2016/2017) has created a number of opportunities for provinces to increase social involvement through bottom-up initiatives. In April 2017, the city deal ' Values for green and blue in the city', in which various municipalities participate, was also given insight into the possibilities for calculating an intervention measure on green space in relation to the health of elderly people with the TEEB city tool. The dialogue instrument was used in 2017 to investigate how the real estate sector view the roles of the various stakeholders involved in green in the city and when are they prepared to take the initiative in this regard? In general, it appears that green space is not included in the vision of the various actors within the real estate sector. In particular, the real estate sector sees a role for the government in setting frameworks and stimulating more green space in the city. It will itself take the initiative if it has a business interest in doing so or if it is imposed externally through government agencies or social pressure.
