Climate Puzzle Workshop Engages Local Citizens in A Coruña Towards 1.5° Lifestyles


On may 19, the University of A Coruña team, in collaboration with the Municipality of A Coruña, organized an interactive workshop at the Organic Market of A Coruña.

Local citizens explored low-carbon lifestyle options in four main consumption areas (nutrition, mobility, housing, and leisure) by engaging with the Climate Puzzle of the EU 1.5° Lifestyle project, designed by our consortium partner D-Mat.

The workshop, moderated by the UDC team—which includes researchers from the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and coordinated by Adina Dumitru—took place at Campo da Leña (Praza de España) in A Coruña.


The workshop hosted 12 participants who discussed pathways to integrate low-carbon lifestyles into their daily lives by 2030, including their motivations for choosing these options. Additionally, they highlighted the most unfavorable lifestyle options that seemed inconvenient or impossible to integrate into their own lives. The Organic Market of A Coruña is held every first and third Sunday of each month from 10:00 to 15:00 at Campo da Leña (Praza de España), providing a space for local producers to offer a wide variety of seasonal and local products, including fruits, vegetables, baked goods, textiles, toys, and more. The main objective of the market is to give consumers the opportunity to purchase proximity products that are healthier and more sustainable. Once again, the Climate Puzzle was the star of the day, taking much attention from regular visitors of the Organic Market. As a result, this workshop will be repeated on June 30, Sunday, at Plaza de la Tolerancia. Stay tuned!
