​Barcelona Synchrotron Park’s Commitment to Nature and Biodiversity
The Espai Terra Catalan public TV program dedicated to nature and environment aired on April 28th was partly shot in Parc de l’Alba and its so-called Barcelona Synchrotron Park business area

The purpose was to present the ALBA synchrotron garden and green roof as well as the park new pathways about to be open in order to make the park’s action program known regarding conservation of biodiversity.

In the program excerpt that can be watched here (in Catalan), the synchrotron garden’s designer explains how the garden has been planned to require low maintenance, low water consumption, no phytosanitary treatment and to be wildlife friendly to foxes, rabbits or partridges, including a falcon couple that has taken up residence in the ALBA roof. Besides, part of this roof is green in order to integrate it in the environment, thermally insulate the building and help biodiversity.

By the way, supporting biodiversity is one of the missions of the park: the corresponding park’s action program that can be downloaded here received last November the Business & Biodiversity label from the European Commission.

The video also allows learning about these actions: Permeability of road infrastructures, creation of shelters to promote birds and other fauna to control pests, naturalised drainage systems (green ditches) or agreements with farmers to promote biodiversity-suited dry croplands in the green corridor and on undeveloped plots.
