100 days to ECCA – we’re planting trees to start the countdown…

11:00, 16 February | Vale da Montanha, Lisbon

If you’re in Lisbon on Saturday, join us at Parque Urbano do Vale de Montanha where we’ll be planting 100 native trees. Urban woodland plays a dual role as both an adaptation and mitigation strategy, so we’re contributing trees to one of Lisbon’s newest parks.

The ECCA 2019 Organising Committee will be joined by José Sá Fernandes (Councillor for the Environment, Green Structure, Climate and Energy of the Lisbon City Council), Carlos Martins (Secretary of State for the Environment) and Diogo de Gusmão-Sørensen (European Commission representative for the Horizon 2020 projects) to celebrate the countdown to ECCA.

ECCA 2019 is organised by three European projects under the Horizon 2020 programme – PLACARD, BINGO and RESCCUE – coordinated respectively by FCiencias.ID, LNEC and AQUATEC (Spain) and co-organised by the Lisbon City Council and the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Transition.
