We came in contact with the project "Grönplan Danderyd" that aims to create a green structure plan for a municipality of Stockholm called Danderyds kommun. Our thesis is a part of this project and makes it's contribution through the gathering and systematization of the knowledge of the functions of an urban green structure. It also makes a contribution through suggesting how this knowledge can be applied during the construction of an urban green structure plan. We found that "Stadens parker och natur", published by the Swedish National board of Housing, Building and Planning, was a recurrent source of information in the green structure plans that we studied. We saw a need of complementary additions and updates to the rather old report and found literature that adds the developments of the last decade. First of all we have chosen to make themes based on the functions of a green structure that were presented by 'Stadens parker och natur'. The themes we suggest that a greenplanning document manage are: Recreation, Pedagogies and Heath, Biological Diversity, Green structure in the History of Building Cities, Cultural Identity, the Health of the City, Biological Technology in the Municipality and Use and the Users. We found good examples of how to handle these themes in documents that handle greenstructure planning from the municipalities of Göteborg, Strängnäs, Eskilstuna, Malmö, Lund, Västerås and Uppsala. We interviewed one person involved in the making of each one of these documents. We suggest methods for how each theme can be reflected in a green structure plan. We also made a visual comment on each theme that can be an inspiration and facilitate discussions during the planning process. We came to the general conclusion that most important when constructing an urban green structure plan is to base it on the prerequisites of the city and to have documented goals for the planning of the green structure. It is also useful to work beyond the boundaries within the organization and concerning ownership of land. To involve the users of the green structure in the planning process and to present the plan in a pedagogic manner adds even more quality to the work.
