Celebrate an International Day gives us the opportunity to raise awareness about things related to issues of interest, such as human rights, sustainable development or health.
October 24th is the International Day against Climate Change. A date that invites to implement and develop practices that serve to stop and mitigate this global problem that continues to be one of the most challenging.
Greenhouse gases (GHG), which naturally prevent part of the sun’s heat from escaping into space and make our planet habitable, continue to increase day by day, accumulating above the appropriate levels to protect us. Carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the most abundant and harmful, comes from the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil or gas.
Finding alternatives that generate clean energy is one of the biggest challenges we face. Fossil fuel producing companies recognize the need to change and develop renewable energy strategies.
Sustainable Development Goals
Climate change is affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives. Weather systems are changing, sea levels are rising, and weather events are becoming more extreme.
The Paris Agreement, approved in 2015, aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The agreement also aims to strengthen the capacity of countries to deal with the effects of climate change through appropriate financial flows, a new technological framework and an improved capacity development framework.
From the 2030 Agenda, Goal 13. Climate Action, urges us to adopt these and other measures urgently to combat climate change. The planet’s resources are not unlimited and we must contribute to maintaining them in order to achieve climate security as much as possible.
The impact of vertical gardens in the fight against climate change
At a time when the consequences of climate change are becoming much more noticeable, it is necessary to develop a new environmental awareness.
The massive construction of buildings, the increase in the emission of greenhouse gases, the stress levels to which the population is subjected and the lack of green spaces, are some of the reasons why the increase in vegetation cover in large cities is becoming more and more necessary.
The presence of vegetation within the main avenues of our country has great benefits on health, the environment and socioeconomic aspects.
The “heat island effect” that is being generated in large cities as a result of global warming can be reduced by installing vertical gardens on the facades of buildings.
Vertical gardens are considered as a measure of adaptation to global warming and the effects of climate change.
Vertical gardens are the ideal solution for large cities: they provide them with small O2 lungs and bring innumerable benefits to an increasingly urbanized environment. Garden facades located on walls, roofs, walls or facades of buildings, whose structure is covered with plants of various species.
Nature-based solutions are helping Europe adapt to climate change.
City planning and architectural design play a key role in maintaining lasting interactions between species and their environment and in combating the climate change we are experiencing.
Its mission is to create urban environments that are developed in a way that is compatible with existing Biodiversity. To achieve this, multidisciplinary collaboration and a firm commitment to urban greening systems are required, a powerful tool for creating healthier environments and committing to sustainable development and environmental conservation.
We accompany you in the design and construction of a sustainable environment and walk with you in that fight against climate change, shall we talk?
