The Gabriela Mistral Primary School benefits from the implementation of plants in its walls and roofs

This school from Solana de los Barros (Badajoz, Spain) is already experiencing the positive effects of the green walls and roofs implemented under the framework of the LIFE-myBUILDINGisGREEN project. The temperature inside the classrooms has already decreased between 11 and 15 %.

Today, the Major of the province of Badajoz, Miguel Ángel Gallardo, has officially inaugurated the nature-based solutions (NBS) implemented in the schools since December 2021.
