Plantathlon - Baia Mare May 2021
The Plantathlons activities carried out in baia Mare during spring 2021 created a collaborative ecosystem supporting citizens-led actions and enhancing the community's involvement in the preparation, seeding, and planting for each of the 5 pilot sites to be recovered. Returning the pilot sites (Romplumb, Ferneziu, Colonia Topitorilor, Urbis, and Craica ) to the local community as a safe and attractive outdoor space will be the first step in building a shared future for the city's metropolitan area.

SPIRE phytoremediation techniques tested in Baia Mare have great potential for scalability and marketability. The benefits for health and well-being cover a wide range of options and possibilities; they are definitely an investment worth making.
