The Athletic Club Foundation works against climate change

In collaboration with the Lugaia Foundation, it will participate in two activities: a reforestation day and another for waste collection in Gaztelugatxe

The Athletic Club Foundation joins the third edition of Asteklima, the Climate and Energy Week to be held in the Basque Country from September 23rd to October 2nd. Asteklima is an initiative promoted by the Department of Economic Development, Sustainability and the Environment of the Basque Government through its public entities EVE and Ihobe, whose objectives are to raise awareness and mobilize citizens in the face of the necessary energy and climate transition.

In collaboration with the Lurgaia Foundation, the Athletic Foundation will participate in two activities that are part of the broad agenda of activities scheduled to mobilize citizens against global warming and into the energy and climate transition.

On Tuesday, September 27th, the Foundation has organized a workshop on Reforestation and Stimulation of Biodiversity in the Urdaibai Biosphere. This is an activity that the Foundation has previously organised and is part of the Co2 Compensation Project.


The Foundation took on, from the 2019/20 season, the commitment to offset the CO2 emissions generated by the trips of the different teams that make up the structure of Athletic Club, from the first men’s and women’s teams down to the lower categories. In this outing organised for Asteklima, the Foundation, as on previous occasions, will take advantage of the occasion to involve collaborating entities in social projects. In this way, united for the common good, users of organisations such as Bakuva, Adsis, Sortarazi or the Osakidetza Mental Health Network will be able to participate in the tree planting together with representatives of Fundazioa and the Athletic Club.

Lastly, on Saturday October 1st, once again together with Lurgaia, the Foundation joins the environmental awareness day on climate change and the collection of marine waste in Gaztelugatxe. This activity, organized by the Bermeo City Council, will take place in the morning and is scheduled to last four and a half hours.
