Who does it practise ?

Everyone who lives in Bilbao or goes there

Where?

Bilbao

When?

Subway: Everyday, everytime nearly every 5 minutes in different directions

Bicycles: From Monday to Friday, 9:00a.m-7:30 p.m

Why do you think that this best practice can be exported ?

Because in our opinion this practice is not so expensive, and most people like it, it is a quick way of transport. On the other hand bicycles also have other advantages: when you are practicing it you exercise your body, so apart from helping to save the environment, you can also have fun and keep healthy at the same time.

Describe the activity

 Just a few years ago Bilbao´s  town hall created this project called “Bilbon bizi” to save the environment and to promote the use of bikes. There are some establishments around the city where you can rent bikes. There are a lot of ways to contact with those places and you just need to send your documentation. Although it is not the most comfortable transport to go through Bilbao, taking into account that there are sloves, it is the most sustainable one.

Even though it is not as sustainable as bikes, the subway is the most comfortable one. The first idea of building a subway system in Bilbao came up at the 1920s.

In 1971 the government of Bizkaia created a commission to evaluate the transportation needs of Greater Bilbao. Five years later two proposals were created to start a subway service, the first of them is almost identical to the current network.

Finally in 1987 the Basque Government approved the plan to build and finance the Bilbao Subway. It was founded in 1995 and nowadays is the most used transport to go through Bilbao.

Who does it practise?

Askora is one of the companies that practises the use of green products.

Where? 

Askora carries out this practise in some schools and other places. One example is our school. Apart from here, it is also carried out in other parts of our area. Askora also render services in Gipuzkoa, Bizkaia, Navarra, Araba and La Rioja.

The central office is in San Sebastian, Gipuzkoa.

When?

Askora service is always working, but our school only has few highlight days in which we eat ecological or local food.

They started working in 2015, few years ago.

Why do you think that this best practice can be exported ?

This company is committed with local producers so people gets interested. Despite being interested, local products are an advantage for our environment because they do not have to use much transport. So, using local products is a way to pollute less. Because of that, this company can be exported.

Describe the activity

Askora is a group that is committed with local lands, products and producers. The forty per cent of the menus contain local and ecological products.  The days that the menu is not highlighted the food is not local or ecological.
