100 days to ECCA – planting trees to start the countdown…
16 February | Vale de Montanha, Lisbon
To begin the countdown to ECCA 2019, we planted 100 native trees in the Parque Urbano do Vale de Montanha – almond, elderberry and oak. 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 was 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.
