All week
September 16, 2014: Storytelling “Ozzy goes to the poles”
We have celebrated last International Ozone Day 2014 with a Storytelling intended for children between 3 and 10 years old and based on the UNEP comic character “Ozzy Ozone”. The storytelling included the screening of “Ozzy goes to the poles” cartoons and also interactive activities as well as to experience what is greenhouse effect and to discover how air pollution affects to breathing. At the end of the tale, educators gave to each child white pictures of Ozzy and Zoe’s faces to paint and to make a funny mask and one Ozzy comic as a present. A total of 21 children and 10 adults came to the storytelling.

September 20, 2014: XI Bicicletada.
Bicicletada is the main event of the European Mobility Week in Andorra. This bike meeting organized by Centre Andorra Sostenible has arrived in 2014 to its eleventh editions as a traditional and consolidated event that meets every year ca. 300 participants of all ages around the celebration of cycling and sustainable mobility. This year Bicicletada took place in the city of Ordino and met 296 bikers and more than fifty volunteers and organization staff members. Besides the cycling circuit (this year was ca. 8 kilometres), Bicicletada included entertainment and a DJ set live music, a free breakfast based on organic and zero km products for everyone and giveaways for all participants.

September 22, 2014: Quite walk.
We have celebrated last European day without cars with a walking guided route that has united the cities of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany. In this route, children and adults, accompanied by two guides, were able to rediscover the hidden curiosities of their streets from the point of view of historical and environmental mobility changes. This quite walk was also an activity that wants to engage the practice of walking as the most recommended healthy and sustainable way to make short daily routes. A total of 35 people came to this activity.

September 16-22, 2014: Message in a bottle.
Message in a bottle is a curious and ingenious proposal, organized by Centre Andorra Sostenible in collaboration with national bus companies, aimed to reward regular public transport users. In that action Andorran city bus passengers could every day during the Mobility Week find glass bottles of “Andorran water” random “lost" in the bus with a message inside. This message inside said that if the person who found that bottle makes a selfie and shares it on Centre Andorra Sostenible social networks (Facebook or Twitter) with a sentence encouraging to use the bus, they will win bus tickets for free.
