The fair was integrated into the Greenfest, the largest annual event in Portugal dedicated to the promotion of best practices on sustainability in the environmental, social and economic areas; with its 2015 edition being dedicated to Active Citizenship. The event was attended by around 25,000 visitors over the four days.
