Urbem is a social NGO with an environmental mission, run by volunteers who work under a shared vision of reconnecting people with forests and the environment.

This urban forest is the result of a partnership between Lisbon City Council – within the scope of the international project Conexus (H2020) – Piloto 1 RENATURA. The project LIFE LUNGS, part of the EU LIFE programme, is another project that supports this pilot through Lisbon City Council. Urbem also receives further support from PLMJ.

This activity encourages families to observe, identify and learn more about different insects, as well as understand their importance in urban environments and the ecological role they play in maintaining ecosystems.
