Initiative “Just not by car”- challenge for a urban mobility within GEF project “Climate Smart Urban Development Challenge”

On Thursday, 18 May, a lot of organizations in Belgrade will join the challenge “Just not by car”, with a goal to promote the usage of alternative ways of transport for going to work.

The officials of Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection will also participate in the challenge led by State Secretary Stana Božović, as well as the UNDP team!

This year the challenge “Just not by car” is realized through support of project “acclimatization of urban development” (Climate Smart Urban Development Challenge) project which is funded by Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and implemented by UNDP in cooperation with the Ministry.

Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, on Thursday, will send a call that all interested individuals, institutions and companies choose to cycle or walk and so support the action in achieving better results and rise awareness about the importance of using alternative ways of transport.

By participating in this action we strengthen the social capital of our communities, improve our health, showing practical and useful ways of urban mobility in urban areas.

In one word, we provide personal and collective contribution to the achievement of sustainable development goals in the fight against climate change.

Tracking of activities is done by a mobile application “Strava” which will track the distance that participants cover.

The organization and the individual with the most distance, and the organization with the largest number of entries, will be awarded.

Besides the Ministry, in organizing of the challenge participated associations “Bajsologija” and “Ulice za bicikliste”, foundation Heinrich Boll and UNDP.
