By Irene Vivas, Proyecta Valencia – Hacia el 2030
Proyecta Valencia – Hacia el 2030 is an awareness raising initiative promoted by five young people in the city of Valencia (Spain). Emilio – an oceanographer and founder of Bioagradables; Rocío – an architect; Julia – a graphic designer and social entrepreneur; Jesus – an architect and Irene – a jurist and Master on Public Policy. The project was born in the framework of the Asociation Bioagradables, an observer organization of SDG Watch Europe.
Our main aim was to capitalize on the synergies created by the Sustainable Development Goals and to collect proposals in order to make our city more sustainable. Several different activities took place from September 2016 to March 2017, from workshops to debates, as well as visits to key ecosystems in the region and a beach cleaning. We contacted local experts on each field who shared their knowledge and expertise in our activities.
In March 2018, we will publish the report of this initiative, which contains 92 specific proposals from the 250 participants, and our new website. The event will take place in Valencia where we will publicise the results with local authorities and experts. We intend to attract more people to implement the proposals. If you want to receive the report or be part of our initiative, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
