Why we are doing it?
Y4PT has decided to launch again a call to promote a healthy life around the world for the benefit of the environment. We urge you to take action and encourage people of your entourage to walk and reduce carbon emissions. Because of the Pandemic, the number of vehicles is becoming higher and people are not used to walking: particularly, they do not like to go outside their comfort zone!
Y4PT goal with this challenge is to encourage people to walk to reach a physical and mental healthier state, change their lifestyle while at the same time trying to get on board other countries to join the Challenge. The international call will reduce carbon emissions by 15 days and encourage people to reduce their single transportation use. Our target audience? Everyone!
Your voice will be heard and will also influence the decision-making process worldwide in terms of carbon emissions! Concretely, we will present the results of the survey, at different international events and your pics and videos will be highlighted on our Youtube Channel and Social Media accounts!
#walkfornature, your Challenge on Social Media!
We are willing to receive your pics and videos on our Social Media Channels ( Facebook, Twitter, Instagram ) during the challenge with the hashtag #walkfornature ! You can meet in Nature or other places, walking alone or with other friends or family members ( anti covid19 measures to be respected!!)
The best pics and videos will be selected and posted on our Y4PT Youtube Channel, Website and Social Media tagging the people who won each challenge!

Here for you just a few ideas of subjects to document your “before and after” WALK FOR NATURE CHALLENGE
Your experience will influence the climate change and sustainable mobility decision-making process at different geographical levels and will also raise awareness about the need of walking, biking and use a sustainable form of mobility all over the world, especially where such transport modes are not as popular as they are in other regions.
As you know, carbon emissions are increasing and harming the environment. The urbanization process in large cities is very fast. As a result, car use is increasing, the damage that cars do to the atmosphere is huge. What is a carbon footprint? Did you know that carbon footprints are a major environmental problem? To know how to reduce the carbon footprint, you need to know what a carbon footprint is. The carbon footprint expresses the amount of tons of carbon dioxide that goes directly into the environment as a result of human activities, including greenhouse gases. In short, the amount per capita of harmful effects of human activity on the environment is called a carbon footprint: for example, when driving, heating your house, cooking, shopping, watching TV, etc. You emit a certain amount of carbon dioxide into the environment. This causes carbon footprints to form. The amount of carbon footprint is usually measured once a year.
We look forward to hearing your stories and we encourage you to share your mobility proposals for the upcoming event!
