“If each one of us plant a tree, one day we will have a forest„
Years of History
Grow this idea!
“Plantar o Futuro” is based on the idea that small actions can lead to great things. Case in point, if each and everyone of us plants a tree, one day it will make up a forest. With this in mind, we want to challenge the University of Aveiro’s new students to adopt a native tree, care for it, and finally, plant it and help build up a forest!
Organised by Agora Aveiro in collaboration with the University of Aveiro and the Municipality of Estarreja, Plantar o Futuro represents a movement for the defence and growth of the native forest and its role in the mitigation of climate change mitigation, forest fire resilience, climate regulation and biodiversity conservation.
The project branches into three separate, but complementary activities, which are directed at different demographic groups of the community: “Plantar o Futuro”, largely directed at university students; “Semear o Futuro”, aimed at primary school children; and “Green Friday”, with a greater emphasis on the general community and local commerce.
