We are sorry to say that Prato Urban Jungle launch event planned for February, 28th has been cancelled and postponed to a future date.
PUJ aims to reforest some areas of Prato city in a sustainable and socially inclusive way, creating urban jungles spots. Those areas of high population density will be redesigned with green, using plants’ ability to depurate air and soil from pollutant and giving abandoned places back to the community as open, healthy and livable.
