Every first Monday in October, the World Habitat Day is celebrated with a goal: to invite humans to reflect on the importance of having a clean, decent and caring, both for ourselves and for other living beings with we live.
Caring for our environment is everyone's responsibility and we celebrate this day in Oasis Park Fuerteventura!
UN choose a theme each year, around which all educational activities and awareness are focused. This year 2015, under the theme "Public Spaces for All", they remind us that "public spaces are generally overlooked and underestimated, but more and more are considered as the backbone of the cities". Parks, streets and playgrounds are available to all citizens for their use and enjoyment.
In Oasis Park Fuerteventura, we are aware of how important are public spaces for our island, Fuerteventura is a major tourist destination in the Canary Islands, and considered by many as a paradise.
While it’s true that more than 50% of the surface of the island is considered a protected natural area, connections through roads and roundabouts, as well as parks and gardens require some care and a very specific attention. The objective of Oasis Park Fuerteventura, in collaboration with Garden Center and Botanical Garden Fuerteventura Fuerteventura, is to create in some of these public access environments, a climate according to our island, and also enhances the cultivation of native species of flora and well adapted to our climate.
Together, these three companies work together to design, decorate and maintain many public spaces throughout Fuerteventura, encouraging the majorera population work, while accompanying the visitor to feel immersed in the middle of what this island, a paradise full of biodiversity and tradition.
Taking care of our island is a responsibility- And Fuerteventura Oasis Park, Garden Center and Botanical Garden Fuerteventura in Fuerteventura, we assume it with strength and hope!
Happy World Habitat Day!
