The agreements signed between the City Council of Fuente Álamo, Murcia, and X-ELIO establish the development of two Urban School Orchards in two schools, and the installation of four Air Quality Monitoring Units in the municipality.
Fuente Álamo (Murcia), March the 10th, 2022 – The multinational sustainable energy developer X-ELIO and the City Council of Fuente Álamo, Murcia, have signed two important collaboration agreements. The first one has the objective of promoting ecologic education, and the second one will help monitor air quality in the municipality. Both of them will be implemented by companies from the Region of Murcia.
For the first project, X-ELIO will install two Urban School Orchards in two of the municipality’s schools: at Pablo Neruda Public School in Balsapintada and at CRA Alzaraba in Los Cánovas. With this two additional Urban School Orchards, the municipality will complete a project that has already developed in other schools in the municipality with the objective of raising awareness among students about the origins of food and the importance of a healthy diet.
Additionally, X-ELIO’s second project will consist on the installation of four Air Quality Monitoring Units which will allow the precise monitoring of air quality in the municipality, raise awareness about the effects of pollution and help the town determine counter-measures in order to improve environmental and health conditions. This initiative is particularly important because, aside from providing information that will be publicly available to residents on the city council’s website, it will enable the City Council access to European Funds.
Both of this projects are part of X-ELIO’s Community Plan, a framework of local and regional initiatives that support the company’s commitment to promoting education, communities, health and environmental protection in the areas where its projects are developed.
The collaboration agreement was signed by Juana María Martínez, Mayor of Fuente Álamo, and Arancha Martínez, Spanish Country Manager of X-ELIO.
