Campus Vairão highlighted on the European map of Circular Cities

As part of the Circular Cities Week 2021, the vertical garden of GreenUPorto was highlighted by the European agency COST


The recent vertical garden, installed on the Vairão campus, gained European visibility, after being featured on the webpage of the prestigious European research and innovation funding institution European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST).

In a world undergoing profound changes, in which expressions such as “decarbonization of the economy”, “ecological footprint”, and “circular economy” have become part of everyday life, marked changes in the way we produce and consume have become essential in the debate about the cities we want for the future.

In the week in which circular cities are celebrated, COST went searching for points where these changes are already taking place and found one of them on our campus Vairão.

The vertical garden, installed on the south side of the FCV2 building for agricultural sciences, thus gained European visibility, having been highlighted in the promotional video #Circular Cities Week 2021. Watch the video about circular cities, here.
