Athletes and organizers can look back to an successful 13th edition of the National Park Bike Marathon Engadine. The event is also far ahead in terms of sustainability, thanks to climate neutrality and a raffle („Umwelttombola“).

Bikemarathon, carbon offset project Bolivia, solar cookers

A Solar Grill from the myclimate project raised awareness at the Nationalpark Bike Marathon.

For the second time the National Park Bike Marathon was held as climate neutral event. myclimate calculated all relevant emissions. These were offset in the myclimate project "Solar and Efficient Cookers for better life, in Bolivia and Paraguay".

In order to implement more sustainable measures, the organizers launched also an environmental fund. This fund is fed by donations as well as by an environmental raffle at the event days. The fund will guarantee the implementation of climate-friendly measures such as the use of reusable dishes for upcoming events. myclimate gave as prize a special printed image from the climate protection project "Power from FSC wood chips in Itacoatiara, Brazil".

For raising awareness on the importance of efficient and solar cookers worldwide, the bike marathon team and myclimate also showcased an original Solarparabolgrill. The Tourism Destination Engadin Scuol Samnaun Val Müstair AG is a close partner of myclimate and since 2012 a "climate neutral company."
