From 14 May to 27 June 2021 The Ci.CLO Gallery in Porto will be showing a series of photos by Carlos Barradas who has been documenting the local implementation of the URBiNAT project in the district of Campanhá, Porto., since the summer of 2020.
The seven URBiNAT cities share their impressions of the repercussions, challenges, responses and alternatives that emerged with the COVID-19 pandemic. In this series of seven posts, we share the main measures implemented by local municipalities, and some stories to inspire alternative and cooperative ways to live together (in) the city. The full set of article will be available in URBiNAT’s deliverable related to the compilation and analysis of human rights and gender issues to be released in 2021.
There is a growing media interest in URBiNAT plans for the creation of a Healthy Corridor in the neighbourhoods of Campanha and Falcao, especially since a preliminary of the urban plan for the district, in November 2020. The following is an extract from an article published in Publico, on 15 January 2021.
