Parks and Sustainability Circuit- May 23

This circuit aims to show policies and health promotion activities in the area of Environment in Curitiba. These strategies are developed with the leadership of the Curitiba Municipal Environmental Department, which is tackling the issue of green spaces for nature conservation in urban areas. This task is essential to guarantee the healthy coexistence of inhabitants with their city. Concern about the quality of this environment is reflected in the adoption of a green space policy for Curitiba, which seeks to maximize the ecological, economic and social benefits that vegetation incorporated into the urban environment can provide. One of the key aspects of Curitiba urban green space policy is precisely the affirmation of recreation and leisure as indispensable factors for the physical and mental equilibrium of human beings and their development. But leisure, although essential to counter the stresses of urban life, is not the primary purpose of much of green space, taking environmental protection and sanitation - the maintenance of soil permeability along the rivers, the riparian vegetation, fauna, flora - and water, air and noise pollution reduction, the main objectives, balancing the city‘s relationship with its environment.
The Sustainability Stations are an initiative of the Curitiba Municipal Environment Department to raise the population’s awareness of the separation of waste, stimulate the reduction of generated waste and further reduce costs of waste management in urban areas. The stations are voluntary delivery points of recyclable materials brought by the population to the site, previously separated and cleaned in accordance with the guidelines contained in a booklet about the program provided by the staff of the Municipal Environment Department. Once brought to stations, the materials are sent to partner Associations of Collectors of Recyclable Materials, in compliance with the National Policy on Solid Waste - Federal Law 12,305 / 2010.
During the bus ride, you will see and discuss various spaces and parks, such as Opera de Arame, São Lourenço Park, Sustainability Stations, etc., but without stopping to visit. The stops are described below:
