Sustainability is a central pillar of the Environment Department's programme, and it therefore invites both individuals and groups to share their concerns and work together towards a common goal: a society committed to preserving and respecting the environment. At La Casa Encendida, we believe that globalisation must be ecologically sustainable, striking a healthy balance between conservation and development, ethics and technology. To this end, we offer environmental training and support projects to prevent the deterioration of our planet, focusing in particular on the urban environment. La Casa Encendida has its own rooftop garden, a small green oasis in the heart of the city which we maintain using sustainable gardening practices.

The City: Public Space/Private Interests

Lecture series organised in collaboration with the Territorio Racional y Sostenible group. We will discuss fundamental concepts like the "social function of property", "public interest" and "public property" and how they are present in and applied to different processes of public asset management and environmental protection.
