Research undertaken by the Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub will address the uncertainties about the specific features of green spaces that provide benefits. For example, what are the characteristics of green space that lead to improved mental health? Do the same characteristics increase or decrease cooling, or the conservation of species?

Research will also consider different goals for green spaces in different cities. It is likely that the amount and kinds of green space in cities, and the benefits it provides, varies with factors such as socioeconomic disadvantage, cultural preferences, temperature and rainfall.
