WWF’s New GreenSpaces App Brings Nature to your Fingertips


Discovered a great park for the kids, an open space to walk your dog or a peaceful green area to chill out? Then why not share the spot with nature lovers across Greece thanks to WWF Greece’s latest GreenSpaces application.

The new app allows users to identify and then pin green spots around town onto an online map, rate and write reviews, comment on what’s good, what’s bad and what needs to be done. By marking these nature spots, users can help create one of the most integrated interactive urban spaces maps country-wide. Users who download the app and upload a green space are eligible to win a bicycle or a GreenSpaces T-shirt. 


To date, more than 400 volunteers have pinned and rated 720 green spaces in 82 cities and towns across Greece.

In the meantime, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is calling on local authorities, municipalities, nature societies and organizations to raise awareness and join the GreenSpaces initiative on June 5, World Environment Day.

WWF Greece‘s GreenSpaces app was produced as part of the “WWF Better Life” project and made possible with the financial support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
