Green islands around university buildings must attract endangered insects

Leiden has one of the most petrified inner-cities of The Netherlands. This is not beneficial for the biodiversity crisis and Leiden University, with a significant number of buildings within the Singels. The priority should be to make a positive impact on the matter.

Currently, LUGO is taking steps with internal departments and Hortus Botanicus to make the buildings and the area surrounding positively influencing the biodiversity. And, we start today at the old University Library! Annetje Ottow, president of the Executive Board, just planted the first plants for the LUGO biodiversity project at Leiden University!
