Street Campaign to promote the use of Mains Water
Wednesday 22 - 10h00 | VNF
Itinerant kiosk and offer of reusable bottles to the public. Portugal is the fourth country in Europe with the highest per capita consumption of bottled water, with an average consumption of 146.4 litres per inhabitant, according to data published by the national water industry.
Considering the high quality levels of tap water from the public network that reaches our territory and the negative environmental impact that the consumption of bottled water represents, namely in terms of the waste produced, and in particular plastic waste, the production of CO2 and energy consumption, while being less advantageous to the consumer from an economic point of view, it is in the interest of all citizens to promote the consumption of tap water from the public network. This healthy and natural option can meet most of your needs. Partnership with Project Bin from Camilo Castelo Branco School Grouping

The Sea starts here, in Famalicão!
Friday 24 - 10h00
Reflections on the importance of the Sea. Seas and ocean occupy 70% of our planet. The importance of the sea for human and planetary health is unquestionable! Most of the rubbish we produce on land ends up in the sea. What goes down the gutter ends up in the sea. The Sea is more than beaches and water sports; it is our culture and one of Portugal's most valuable resources. These and many other issues will be discussed in this conference about the Sea!
