Most Dutch train stations harbor an unexploited potential: their flat roofs. Spaces that can be transformed into green resting areas, and become key elements of a station. As an example, the roof of Boxtel train station has been transformed. Passengers can observe pollinator insects, which are the starting point of vegetal biodiversity, while resting or waiting for their train.
The idea was that if people haven´t got time to visit nature, it can be brought to them. These green spaces will also informa people about the role of insects in biodiversity, reduce energy wastage, and offer soundproofing and better air quality.
