Under the hashtag #MoveTogether, the Spanish mobile app Hoop Carpool together with Denia Town Council present an initiative to encourage citizens to share a car.

The council aims to raise awareness about the importance of reducing polluting emissions when travelling by car. This year, the aim is to reduce the energy bill of citizens in the face of rising fuel prices.

The challenge will begin on Monday, October 3, and end on Sunday, December 18, according to Denia Town Hall

The Councillor for Health, Javier Scotto, confirmed that: “There are only advantages to this scheme: less traffic, more parking, fewer costs, more health, less CO2, and more sustainability for a Denia that lives together.”

The main objective of the challenge is to save 400 kilograms of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere in the three-month period in which the challenge is active.

As an incentive, there will be individual prizes for the driver and passenger who make the most journeys. Each will receive as a gift a trip for two valued at €100 with one night’s hotel accommodation paid for. These prizes will be given at a closing ceremony on Sunday, December 18, at which all participants will be offered breakfast.
