Environmental Studies Centre - The Green Infrastructure of Vitoria-Gasteiz



The CEA and the Environment and Public Space Department of the Vitoria-Gasteiz City Hall, with the collaboration of the Association Zabalgana Batuz(Opens in new window)), have initiated a process of public participation in order to gather ideas and proposals to improve the green areas and vacant plots of Zabalgana in relation to Green Infrastructure.

The process is included within the Urban Green Infrastructure of Vitoria-Gasteiz district by district that the City Hall is carrying out in order to transform the green areas and free spaces of the city's districts. The project, which was developed at the beginning as a pilot scheme in the district of Lakua, now proposes to extend its scope to other districts of the city, beginning with the district of Zabalgana, for which it is intended to collaborate from the very start with neighbourhood associations and social groups.

The participation process runs from June to October. In June, the first two sessions took place, consisting of a general presentation, which took place on June 1 at the parish church of Santa Clara in Zabalgana and a guided visit through the district of Lakua, on June 8, in which some of the actions carried out in the green spaces and empty plots of that district were explained.

The second part of the workshop will take place in September and October.
