Burgas Citizens to Get Healthier

From 16 - 22 September 2012, the Bulgarian coastal city of Burgas will join more than 1000 other European cities in the `European Mobility Week`. The week is to encourage city citizens to `Get Mobile` and leave their vehicles at home and find healthier alternatives to getting around by either walking or cycling.

The eco-week is also an initiative to help make people aware of the green issues of the environment, and encourage the use of local public transport to help reduce the traffic on the roads. Transport companies are also campaigning to promote subscriptions for public transport use. Free transport will be available to those with disabilities during the week.

The week begins with a series of events including a cycling demonstration, a marathon and picnics all in a bid to encourage the public to enjoy the satisfaction from exercise and get outdoors.
