Emergencies. The weather forecast indicates the possibility of snow in the upper parts of the city.
Environment and sustainability. The solar energy source will come into use in the first quarter of 2021, rounding off the project to cover the ring road where it passes through the Vall d’Hebron neighbourhood.
Climate emergency. The goal is to tackle the effects of the climate emergency, promote inclusive play and open spaces up to the neighbourhoods.
Climate emergency. The Barcelona Sustainable Energy Mechanism is being set up with the goal of driving energy projects and attracting private funding.
Climate emergency. A group of experts will spend a year exploring solutions to the challenges posed by the climate emergency and draw up a roadmap.
Urban planning. The work is a key project for adapting the sewerage system to the effects of the climate crisis.
Urban planning. The transformation begins in L’Eixample, where one in three streets will be greened up and local people will all have a square within 200 metres of their homes.
Air quality. The excess in pollution causes one in every three new cases of asthma among children and 11% of lung cancer cases.
