We're offering up a preview of our Greenbelts issue, coming out in March. In this issue, we tell the stories of greenbelts around the world, including the 12,500-km pan-European pathway along the former iron curtain, home to this gorgeous Balkan lynx.

Coming up online, we'll have more lynx photos, four ways greenbelts can improve cities, plus a photo essay profiling the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) First Nation's struggle to protect Northwestern Ontario’s boreal forest – the planet’s largest carbon storage system – and lots more!

Sign up for our monthly newsletter to make sure you don't miss issue previews and must-reads, and learn about the history of greenbelts in our 14 Centuries of Greenbelts blog post.

Every two months, the A\J team gathers at our favourite café around the corner to toss punny headlines at each other and see what sticks. Here are some that didn't make it this time around:

  • Coal's Shebang
  • The Coal Shoulder
  • Shale Fail
  • Frack Attack
  • Feckless Fracking
  • Frack Check
  • MTA not MIA
  • Nature Without Borders
  • Retracing the Iron Curtain
  • The Battle Over Montreal's Bulge
  • The Hindsight Zone
  • Hindsight is Greener
  • The Peace Planter's Daughter
  • Rooted in Hope
  • Shocks and Spikes
Match these up with the real headlines above and let us know if you think we chose the wrong ones – or if you can do better!
