In February 2018, BOPB published the first call for grant of funds for projects involved in the frame of Barcelona’s commitment for the climate change.
The project which will last for one year, aims to develop a series of actions to be implemented as a result of a research work done previously by the pupils of Quatre Cantons school. This research has been directed by Biohabita! and Societat Orgànica, two specialized companies on these matters.
The project deals with energy efficiency, sustainability, improving the materials and systems of the building under the health point of view and in a more theoretical way, issues like water and waste management and the benefits of greenery inside the school.
As a final work, a document will be prepared in order to spread the information obtained on different levels as the school community, the neighbourhood and the city. This should allow other schools to implement an equivalent task.
The first three months have already past in which we have been working along with the pupils in the assessment of the building through different workshops and activities, as per the project’s schedule.
