Strengthening ties with the local port city community in Barcelona, Saint John and Leixões

 Health and life quality 

In 2020 we have seen numerous acts of solidarity from ports towards local communities. Recent examples can be seen in Barcelona (Spain), where the port is involved in 3 initiatives: the “Solidarity Container”, for food and toiletries donations; the “Marina Walktrain” to support a local hospital; and the “Why?” project, to raise attention children’s rights. Another example can be found in, Leixões (Portugal) where the port is awarding the best high-school students from Matosinhos and Viana do Castelo. In Saint John (Canada), the port is also specially engaged with the local community for the holiday season, in The Harbour Lights Campaign, to support fundraising for 15 food banks in Southwestern New Brunswick.
