Council for Infrastructure and the Environment

100 participants

A project aimed to make cycling a part of everyday life, in Trentino. The provincial government's Council for Infrastructure and the Environment is coordinating the initiative, which follows a health-in-all-policies approach. Citizens are invited to create a profile and can participate in an informal competition to establish who – among institutions, companies or informal groups – is more active and saves more carbon dioxide. An app can be downloaded free of charge to track progress, and virtual medals will be granted for the most active cyclists. This is the great innovative aspect that can be applied in other countries on the other sports events.

Through this event the organizers want to help convey the message that cycling brings multiple benefits: it reduces pollution, improves the environment and above all makes you feel good. It is a message that appeals to all ages - from children to adults - and in different contexts, schools, companies, municipalities, associations.
