URBiNAT Work Package Leader for Citizen Engagement in Support of NBS reflects on the impact of URBiNAT on the project. "I was recently infected with corona virus. Prior to that I had a received my two vaccine jabs. But on our holiday with family my wife and I caught the virus from our daughter. The fact that we had received our vaccines reduced the symptoms that we felt during our illness."
The green area to be created in the eastern part of the city is based on the consolidation of people's needs, both in terms of pedestrian mobility and in terms of intervention in the green infrastructure, giving priority to Nature-Based Solutions.

Mas em Portugal ainda é essa a solução dominante.
