Summary of the project
The VIMACT project associates with the achievement of the 13th Sustainable Development Goal by the UN: “Educate young people on climate change to put them on a sustainable path early on”.
The main objective of the project is to increase Biodiversity and consequently the Biocapacity of Guimarães, by the renaturalization and recovery of the landscape on the Penha mountain.
The foreseen actions are, among others, building and implementing green infrastructures (a pond and a wildlife forest corridor). In this sense, there will be implementation of theoretical and practical trainings, creation of a permanent pond by the observatory of avifauna in the Penha Mountain, as well as plantation of an autochtone woodland with the goal of potentiating the creation of an ecological corridor.
This variety of activities is always planned with the participative inclusion of the population in promoting biocapacity. For example, by increasing carbon sink ability, and raising awareness for more sustainable lifestyles, therefore reducing individual and global Ecological Footprint.
