On October 27, Estepona City Council will receive the ‘Málaga Viva’ prize awarded by the Provincial Council for its good environmental practices.
As highlighted by the jury of these awards, Estepona has been deserving of this recognition thanks to the project ‘Estepona, garden of the Costa del Sol’, with which more than 19 linear kilometers of public roads have been pedestrianized and restricted to traffic, as well as embellished with vegetation more than 130 streets and public squares. Estepona’s candidacy has been the winner of a total of nine proposals that have competed for the ‘Málaga Viva’ awards in the Climate category.
In the rest of the categories, the winners this year will be the Andalimpia Association, the company FoliaProject and the director of the Sierra de las Nieves National Park and Montes de Málaga Natural Park, Rafael Haro, with the ‘V Málaga Viva Awards’.
The award ceremony will take place within the framework of the ‘VII Málaga Viva Encounter’ that will take place on October 27 at the Edgar Neville Auditorium under the title ‘Disseminators against climate change’, according to what has been advanced by the Provincial Institution. The Climate, Tree and Air modalities entail the delivery of a cash prize of 3,000 euros.
The president of the Diputación de Málaga, Francisco Salado, explained that “with these awards we try to reinforce the professional or altruistic work of so many people who, throughout our province, fight against climate change and for the environment. ».
