About Castellón de la Plana
Castellón de la Plana is the capital city of the province of Castellón in Spain, with almost 200,000 inhabitants. The city functions as an economic and social centre for the whole province. The municipality is currently focusing its efforts on promoting systemic changes in the organisation of buildings, energy networks and transport, and is emphasising the importance of the engagement of all relevant stakeholders in these processes, along with the ongoing involvement of citizens. The municipality aims to be a living lab of new and innovative technologies, and promotes any activity directed towards achieving the low carbon economy objectives.
Castellón is tackling several climate and water related challenges, such as water scarcity, heat stress, pollution and densification. The city aims to employ a range of nature-based solutions in planned landscape-scale integrated urban water management. The city's vision for 2050 is to have a green city with a high-quality living environment for everyone. Green corridors will connect the different parts of the city, which will provide shaded places to walk and cycle. The city will also make the best possible use of their water and natural resources. The wetlands will be transformed and a blue-green infrastructure is realised, which will contribute to the environment through a circular economy.
