Sustainable Sunday, a family event about sustainability

Barcelona holds an event focused on sustainability applicable to everyday citizens event next 26th of april

Shows that sustainability concerns all of us and helps to construct a better world. This is one of the main targets of the event Sustainable Sunday of next April 26, in the Centro de Cultura Contemporánea (CCCB). This free-of-charge event, as part of Sustainable Brands Barcelona 2015, will allow citizens to find answers and more sustainable options.

Sustainable Sunday will be a curtain-raiser for a seminar to be held on April 27th and 28th, in which companies, social entrepreneurs, experts in sustainability, researchers, NGOs, investors, academics and government agencies with a commitment to sustainability will debate and analyze a number of initiatives designed to create a better future. In this sense, I will participate in a presentation – Tuesday 28th – regarding the contribution of the private sector in the new Sustainable Development Goals.

During Sunday, the assistants will be able to enjoy a series of plenaries. In a talk titled ‘Sustainability linked to extreme sports’ACCIONA 100% EcoPowered team member Albert Bosch will share his experiences in the Dakar 2015 driving the first electric car in the event, powered by clean energies and developed by ACCIONA. In addition, visitors to Sustainable Sunday will be able to see the ACCIONA 100% EcoPowered in the CCCB and discover (in a multimedia exhibition) the technical secrets of the vehicle that left a sustainable footprint on the Dakar.

Sustainable Sunday

ACCIONA’s program during Sustainable Sunday will be rounded off by the screening of the documentary ‘Viajeros del viento’ (Travelers of the wind), which describes the ACCIONA Windpowered Antartica challenge, a zero-emissions sled powered by kites that reached the geographical South Pole in an expedition headed by Ramón Larramendi. The project collected scientific information on the Antarctic without making any environmental impact there.

All this makes up Sustainable Brands Barcelona 2015, a world-scope event that aims to link and share thoughts and ideas to orientate society towards a sustainable model of trade and consumption.
