ZEroCO2 Climate Caravan

ZEroCO2 constantly keeps moving!
The ZEroCO2 transnational campaign, "Climate Caravan", travels throughout Europe: Portugal, Spain, Italy and Gre­ece; these main caravan spots.

Energy saving and efficiency, renewable energy sources and sustainable life style are important issues all over Europe: the future challenge is to face the questions together as European citizens.

The international Caravan’s crew will set up exhibitions, shows and events in general, in order to involve children, schools, municipalities, administrators and local entrepreneurs in climate issue.

Our road campaign is a key tool to develop and spread awareness and attention for the energy efficiency issue and the best practices to reach it.

The Caravan shows the path to change the global environmental situation to a better reality; from global to local and back!

How does your town can be a promoter of change?
