FUTURO – the 100,000 trees project in the Porto Metropolitan Area – is a planned and coordinated effort by various organizations and citizens with the objective of creating and maintaining native urban forests in this region, which needs to enrich its biodiversity, sequester carbon, improve air quality, protect its soils and contribute to a better quality of life for people. So it boils down to one word – FUTURE. Because there is no future without trees.
FUTURO is an initiative of CRE.Porto (Regional Center of Excellence in Education for the Sustainable Development of the Metropolitan Area of Porto), coordinated by the Metropolitan Area of Porto and the Catholic University of Portugal (Porto). Several public and private entities actively participate in FUTURO, offering institutional support and material and human resources to the project. Find out more about the role of each partner.
