“The bike is the symbol of an ecological future for the city of tomorrow and an urban utopia capable of reconciling society with itself”

Marc Augè

On 3 June, World Bicycle Day, Remida will pay tribute to this democratic, ecological object, synonymous with freedom and kindness, to speak not only of mobility but of urban, social, environmental, economic sustainability and regeneration, with an online and offline program.

Throughout the day, online, materials from schools, families, people of the national and international Remida centers will follow one another. In the afternoon, just in the heart of the city, an installation will come to life with Remida materials.

In fact, if for a while we are not allowed to stay too close, we will bring objects and materials close in place of us, Little by little we will build a collective composition in Piazza Prampolini.
An initiative that today more than ever we see inserted in the framework of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals.

Remida
the creative
recycling
centre

REMIDA, conceived in 1996 in Reggio Emilia, is a cultural project about sustainability, creativity and research on industrial waste materials. We promote the idea that what is discarded or imperfect, can still be a bearer of beauty, elicit reflections, and propose itself as an educational resource, thus escaping the definitions of “useless” and “trash”.
