Streetlife Festival 2014

Green City

A utopia?

Lush green oases instead of asphalt jungle. Clean air instead of smog. Places to meet friends instead of busy intersections. Streets filled with pedestrians, bikers, skaters and playing children instead of traffic jams… a utopian fantasy?

Green City e.V. is working to make this dream come true, piece by piece. Together we are making Munich a better place by promoting the use of alternative forms of transportation, supporting and initiating sustainable city planning and encouraging conscientious energy use. Our vision of Munich is a city of the people for the people.
Think. Join in. Create.

A handful of dedicated citizens founded Green City in 1990 with the goal of creating a people-friendly and green Munich. Today we can count on almost 1,500 fellow campaigners, coordinated by a six-person managing board and a professional team of twenty-five.

For me, for Munich, for the world

We are reclaiming the streets as living space. We are making urban life greener and more pleasant – with trees, flowers and benches. We advocate and promote more bicycles, trains, buses and other sustainable modes of transportation.

By championing renewable energy and energy efficiency, we are laying the groundwork for a secure and sustainable future for upcoming generations. Munich has the potential to run entirely on energy captured from water, wind, and the sun!

We do it naturally

We don’t just talk, we act – with courage, vision and enthusiasm. We get a kick out of implementing our ideas in unexpected and charming ways. We like to actively include as many people as possible to tackle projects right at our doorstep. That is where we can make change happen, for example:


  • Streetlife-Festival: Twice a year 200,000 people reclaim the streets as we transform Munich’s main boulevard, the Leopold- and Ludwigstrasse, into the biggest pedestrian promenade in the city!
  • Traveling Trees: With trees on wheels, we call for more green in the city. Our traveling trees have taken root in more than 150 places.
  • Cycling Through Life/ Life-Cycle: Mobility for all – that’s our motto. We offer individual bicycle courses for immigrants, senior citizens and people with disabilities.

Think with us! Work with us!

Take action and get involved at Green City. You can expect fun and plenty of action as well as interesting projects and contacts. Whether as a volunteer, member or donor, there are many ways to help!
