Padova O2

Making the city healthier, safer and more resilient and protecting the health of citizens are paramount objectives for the Municipality of Padova. This is why Padova accepted a new challenge to bring nature and biodiversity back to the city: improving air quality and the quality of life by growing 10,000 new trees, together with citizens, companies and associations, in an area made available by the Municipality and as wide as 12 football pitches.

Did you know that 8 new trees can capture the PM10 emitted by one car in a year? And that urban trees contribute to reducing the effects of heat waves in summer?

For each area, a public event has been organized to give all the supporters the possibility to plant their own trees. If you are going to support the project now, after trees have been planted, you will receive the certificate of adoption and you can follow the growth of the forest through our updates or visiting the area that can thrive thanks to your support too.

In this page, in the section “active forest areas”, you can adopt your tree in one of the following parts of the city:

  • Chiesanuova (completed – public planting day on 08.02.2020)
  • Mortise (completed – public planting day on 26.10.2019)
  • Arcella (completed – public planting day on 07.12.2019)
  • Pontevigodarzere (completed – public planting day on 07.12.2019)
  • Altichiero (completed – public planting day on 26.10.2019)
  • Torre (completed – public planting day on 07.12.2019)
