On 20 July, a group of Democratic Social Party deputies led by Deputy Mayor Mr Bruno, held a press conference to provide further insight into the CIVITAS Mimosa project for journalists.Local media attending the press conference heard first hand the politician’s enthusiastic support CIVITAS MIMOSA and how the programme is reducing air pollution and the use of individual transportation in Funchal.

Politicians spoke of how CIVITAS MIMOSA seeks to show citizens that smarter more measured use of vehicles carries personal, economic and health benefits, as well as improving the surrounding environmental conditions.Emphasis was placed on how increased public awareness of CIVITAS MIMOSA’s hard and soft measures happening in Funchal could lead to a significantly higher uptake in sustainable mobility and thereby reduce the need for costly corrective measures in the future.The new Green Line along with the upcoming launch of the “Electrical Bicycle Rental” and “Park & Ride” services received particular praise from the politicians group. This ongoing firm commitment and initiative shown by local politicians will be instrumental in contributing to the increased dissemination of the CIVITAS MIMOSA in Funchal.
