But millions are deprived of it
Urbanisation is sweeping the globe, replacing green with grey and erasing nature from hundreds of millions lives. Already, more than half of human beings live in urban areas. Already, concrete outweighs every tree, bush and shrub on the planet. And things are getting worse. Nature deprivation is an epidemic, and a social and environmental inequality: low-income households and people of colour are disproportionately deprived of both public and private green space, and suffer the negative mental, physical and social impacts of this deprivation.
