Marta Cerqueira &
Lígia Gomes

Project: Peggada

Marta is a journalist and an innate communicator. She speaks passionately about everything she does, be that writing, sports, food, yoga and most recently sustainability, her newest personal struggle.

Lígia is a full-time dreamer with several hats: pharmacist, anthropologist, blogger, digital nomad and much more. She visited 61 countries and after those travels, got very worried about caring more for our planet. Recently, she got very passionate about spreading awareness of sustainability and human rights.

PROJECT

We aim to create an all-encompassing platform of all things related to sustainability in Lisbon. All sustainable businesses, events linked to the circular economy and informative texts will be present there. It will help businesses to gain visibility whilst providing the consumer with a simple tool to a greener life. 

We started talking on Instagram as we shared a lot of common interests in the field of sustainability, and both wanted to help people starting their green journey. We both applied for Women4Climate with different projects and started to talk more and more. As Marta’s project moved to the next phase, she invited Lígia to join so they could do this journey together.

MOTIVATION FOR AND COMMITMENT TO CREATING A BETTER AND MORE SUSTAINABLE PLANET

We have already done so, within our sphere of influence. Now, that sphere is going to be extended and, as such, the demand and the will are even greater.
