The cleanest and greenest cities in the world


I still remember when I visited New Delhi. It was in autumn of 2003 and marked the beginning of my first great trip around the world. Our stay of almost 3 weeks in India was a real fiasco, but one of the things I remember most clearly is the great dirt that not only covered the streets of the city, but floated in the air.

Every night he returned to the hostel with the greasy face, completely black nostrils and even with dark stands around the pants pockets, just put your hands in them from time to time.

The pollution of Delhi was only overcome in Peking.

To me, that I like nature trips much more than urban ones, I think it is essential to take care of the air of the cities, its streets ... the environment of the planet, in general. That's why I like to know which cities have launched ecological initiatives to help contribute as little as possible to climate change. Yes, although guys like Trump and Bolsonaro deny it, climate change is a real and serious problem.

That said, these are some of the cleanest and greenest cities on the planet:

1. Hamburg

Hamburg is one of the cleanest cities in the world, in addition to eco friendly. The city authorities have pledged to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. To do this, they encourage citizens to use public transport and are making large investments in the development of clean technologies.

2. Chicago

The city of Chicago has implemented a garbage and pollution reduction plan. As part of it, almost 1 million square meters of gardens have been created on the roofs of buildings. In addition, the public transport network is being improved to reduce the number of private vehicles on the streets.

3. Copenhagen

This colorful and beautiful city of Denmark keeps its streets untouched. In addition, the authorities have made large investments to improve water and air quality. The measures have been so effective that people can swim in the waters of the port without getting dirty. Do not try in the port of Alicante, my hometown. You are notified.

4. Honolulu

Honolulu had it really easy. It is a great city, but installed in the middle of the natural paradise of the Hawaiian Islands.

Honolulu it hardly has polluting factories, it has a large number of green areas and citizens are very conscious About the trash In addition, he is interested in staying on the list of cleanest cities in the world so as not to lose the aura that makes it one of the best tourist destinations in the world.
