ECOncrete is the leader of the EU-funded consortium project at the Port of Vigo (Spain). Living Ports will showcase a new direction for working waterfronts across the world through groundbreaking concrete infrastructure technology providing ecological benefits, accompanying academic research, and public outreach and education efforts.
The project is partnering with Blue Flag, an organization that connects the public with their environment, to achieve the project’s goals. Blue Flag is crafting an educational experience in the Living Port’s underwater observatory, the Nautilus, through immersive environmental content adjacent to ECOncrete’s seawall installations at the port. Visitors from near and far will learn about biodiversity, noise pollution, and local bathymetry while viewing the port’s traffic and witnessing the ecological uplift from the bio-enhancing seawalls.
