          World Car Free Day was marked in Montenegro with the initiative “By bike from Podgorica to Trgaja”. This action was accomplished through the partnership among the Montenegro Red Cross, Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism, organisation Biciklo.me, Monte-fototracking. Besides the, other partners (NGO Ozon, NGO Green Home, University Donja Gorica) also took part in preparing this manifestation through mobilizing citizens, companies, national institutions, foreign embassies and others. The goal of marking this date in Montenegro is to raise awareness about the importance of cycling for environmental protection and reducing the emissions of greenhouse effect gasses, the positive effects of cycling for health, the importance of continued organization of such events and the need for improving the conditions and safety of cyclists in traffic.

          The response of citizens to this action was excellent, since more than 300 cyclists of all ages participated in the event in Podgorica. Before the very start of the tour the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism awarded prizes, and Montenegro Red Cross distributed bicycle helmets and informational material. The Red Cross supported this action by providing a first aid team for the participants of the tour. A two-hour break was made in Trgaja members of the first aid team from the municipal organization of Red Cross of Podgorica demonstrated first aid methods in a simulation of a traffic accident.

          The action got a lot of attention from the citizens of Podgorica, which proves the success of the event itself. This marks the first step towards strengthening public awareness about the detrimental effects of greenhouse gases for the environment and the deeper consequences of these emissions, which are reflected in negative impacts of climate change in Montenegro.
