FuenAragón contributes to identify and characterise the sources and springs of Aragon through citizen science. 

In addition, it will distribute the necessary material to assess the water quality of springs and fountains using nitrate concentration as an indicator.

Multi-generational project: The project combines the knowledge of older people, who are often the ones who know the most about the environmental, cultural and ethnographic values of the territory, with the knowledge that young people have about new technologies, making it an intergenerational project.

Your collaboration is necessary: The inhabitants of different parts of Aragon become promoters of the project, at the same time as they provide all the information on the map of the springs and fountains that they know and that they have the opportunity to enhance. With your participation you will contribute to improving knowledge and maintaining Aragon's natural wealth. There are different ways to participate: as an individual, as an association or organisation and as an educational centre.

The development of the project will have several stages:
1º.- Publicise what the project consists of through a website and impacts in the media and social networks.
2º.- Call for citizen participation and collaboration in three ways: as individuals, as associations or towns and as educational centres.
3º.- Identifying sources and springs through the CitMapp app.
4º.- Distribution of water quality measuring strips to find out the state of fountains and springs.
5º.- Data collection and dissemination of results.


The aim of FuenAragón is to draw up a map with the natural springs and fountains that exist in Aragón.
