The Grand Gala highlighted the city of Vila Nova de Famalicão and enabled us to return to the magnificent Parque da Devesa, a venue where nature is in perfect harmony with the cityscape. It was a night where we reencountered our friends and partners and had the opportunity to congratulate the national and international finalists as well as enable Oficina’s students to put into practice all the technical, artistic and relational know-how they developed in the several professional courses offered by the school.  

This 11th edition’s Gala was supported by the municipality of Vila Nova de Famalicão represented by the councilman for education, Augusto Lima, who welcomed all that attended.  

The evening was once again enriched by the performances of Artave that offered us two fantastic musical moments and also by the dance group from Famalicão “MC Academy”.

Throughout the 11th Edition there were many challenges and the award ceremony was the culmination of a year’s work in which the motto “Join Generation Hope” called for the mobilization of youngsters and their creativity in the search for new solutions to deal with the climatic challenges our planet faces.

However, we wouldn’t be able to pursue these objectives if we didn’t have the support of our partners, participants and finalists! Our deepest appreciation to all those who help BGREEN grow and inspire young people from all over the world.

The winners will have the opportunity to enjoy an eco-Adventure trip to the Azores, recognized as the only archipelago in the world to hold the international sustainability certification.
