Walk the Global Walk is highlighted in Seminar on Municipal Climate Change Adaptation Plan for VFX

In the scope of the Walk the Global Walk project the young leaders who participated in it and AIDGLOBAL, the entity that conducted the project in Portugal, were invited to participate in a Seminar framed within the launching of the Municipal Plan of Adaptation to Climate Change for the Municipality of Vila Franca de Xira (PMAAC VFX).

Last 25th November, AIDGLOBAL participated in a Seminar held at Fábrica das Palavras, in Vila Franca de Xira, in which the Municipal Plan of Adaptation to Climate Change for the Municipality of Vila Franca de Xira was launched.

The participation of the Organization arises under the scope of the activities streamlined under the project Walk the Global Walk, through which it sought to promote an Education for Global Citizenship, around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These activities were developed with students from some of the Schools of Vila Franca de Xira and one of the themes highlighted coincided with the Action against Global Climate Change.

Ana Lua Ross, AIDGLOBAL`s Project Manager, was present on behalf of the organization, to present the purpose of the project and the activities developed by the young leaders. Three of these young people, students from the Pedro Jacques de Magalhães School, in Alverca do Ribatejo, and their teacher, were also present to share their experience in the creation of projects closely related to climate action.

The initiative was attended by around 100 participants and 40 local and supra-municipal entities that, on this occasion, demonstrated the thematic relevance of adaptation to climate change.

The Walk the Global Walk project was co-financed by the European Commission and Camões I.P.. Twelve countries were involved: Italy, France, Cyprus, United Kingdom (Wales and Scotland), Portugal, Greece, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, 11 civil society organizations and 20 partner entities, including AIDGLOBAL, in partnership with the Municipality of Vila Franca de Xira.
