The PARK(ing) Day annual worldwide event landed in Barcelona on 18 September for the second consecutive year. The initiative, which started in San Francisco in 2005, advocates a more efficient city model and transforms public parking spots into temporary public parks.
Sacopa – Igniagreen participated in this can’t-miss event and crated a spectacular terrace using Igniagreen products on Barcelona’s central Rambla de Catalunya. With the slogan “Give life to your terrace”, the installation was organised in collaboration with Arboretum Exteriorisme and Plantinova.
The redesigned parking spot showed passer-bys how easy it is to create urban gardens on any surface with no construction required using the effective and sustainable Igniagreen system.
PARK(ing) Day is celebrated annually in more than 200 cities worldwide to call attention to the need for greener urban management, with a commitment to sustainable mobility and reduced pollution, both atmospheric and acoustic.
A number of TV stations reported PARK(ing) Day Barcelona 2015, which involved the participation of 60 groups, and interviewed our colleague Alberto del Hoyo from Fluidra Industry – Igniagreen. Check it out!
