It is a day of social and ecological awareness whose objective is to increase the possibilities of using collective means of transport to avoid individual use of each person's vehicle. In this way it is possible to notably reduce harmful emissions and thus less polluted air.
It is proposed to carry out a draw for a monthly subscription card among all those citizens who demonstrate that they have used an alternative transport to the private vehicle this day. To participate in the raffle, you must upload a photo that shows the use of another mode of transport other than the car to the City Council's Twitter profile with a specific hashtag created for the raffle.
