BSVV signs partnership with Bosko to generate green spaces with community impact.SHARE
Under this alliance, Barros Silva Varela & Vigil will contribute a pocket forest to the Centro Educacional Cardenal Samoré, a municipal technical-vocational high school located in the heart of La Florida, 2 blocks from the intersection of avenues Vespucio and Vicuña Mackenna, one of the busiest corners in the country. The school offers day and night classes and this green area will benefit both the school and the neighbours due to its location.
Under the Japanese Miyawaki technique, which reduces forest growth time from 200 to 20 years, 10 times faster than a traditional plantation, small forests are created that allow the transformation, in a short time, of wasteland or degraded land into green and wild forests, which are a refuge for biodiversity and which also sequester carbon, generate oxygen, retain water, reduce temperature and improve human health and well-being.
Claudia Ferreiro, the partner who promoted this initiative, said that the idea of providing a green space in a school has several purposes: social and environmental, as it generates green infrastructure at the service of people, creates a meeting place and promotes the link and attachment with our natural heritage; and finally, aesthetic, as it beautifies and dignifies places that were formerly degraded or abandoned.
