Social Project

The social element is one of the four different features of bgreen.

Considering the premise “Think Globally, Act Locally”, bgreen proposes getting down to work so as to improve living conditions of local communities.

The social project is made up of volunteer students from the organizing school, that promote environmental intervention and awareness sessions for the region’s disadvantaged population.

To this end, all sessions are carried out in close partnership with the municipalities of Santo Tirso and Vila Nova de Famalicão.

With such project, in addition to putting into practice the environmental, pedagogical and solidarity principles that the festival upholds, we are also contributing to the development of youth as individuals, instilling in them values such as respect for others, equality, commitment and responsibility which are inherent to OFICINA’s educational project.

Best moments of the bgreen social project

Did you know…

Some plastic containers, including feeding bottles, contain an additive which makes plastic harder and transparent. When the chemical connection between that substance and polycarbonate plastic is broken, it mixes with the liquid inside the container. This phenomenon is accelerated when heating the plastic. Most people heat their food in the microwave in plastic recipients… The effect that these substances have on humans is still being studied but it is known to cause several health problems to animals.
