Love.futbol Project

In Brazil, Scatec partnered with global NGO love.futbol to reclaim community spaces as platforms for sustainable social change.

The challenge

The community of Bom Sucesso is located only a few hundred meters away from our 162 MW Apodi solar plant. While direct project impacts were limited, a needs assessment revealed that Bom Sucesso would strongly benefit from an upgraded community space, particularly for children and youth.

How we worked together

Working closely with the local residents, we designed and developed a physical space for the community. We held meetings with cultural, environmental, sports and women’s groups, as well as businesses, local institutions, and the municipality.

In this project the word construction goes far beyond placing bricks, stones, sand, or painting. It means the construction of a stronger community, increasingly aware that working together is essential for its sustainable development.
