Groenvoorziening in sociale woningbouw: Stand van zaken in literatuur en praktijk voor het project ‘Prettig Groen Wonen’

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The objective of the ‘Pleasant Green Living’ project is to investigate what a healthy, green public space around social housing should look like and how it can be realized. In this document, current knowledge and experiences from pilot projects are reported. Social housing is inhabited by vulnerable groups such as low-income households. It is unknow what green infrastructure social tenants would like to have. Example projects provide an indication that residents value a meeting place, play areas, and colorful and diverse greenery. It is difficult to identify the costs of greenery. Investing in residents’ participation for greening of their environment has positive results: it makes residents proud of their neighborhood, it leads to more social cohesion and more careful use of the outdoor space. The energy transition and climate adaptation must be included in the restructuring of these neighborhoods.
