As has never been seen in the history of modern humanity, most environmental analyzes and projections, which at some point were “long-term” on the impact and indelible mark of the human, around its excessive production and consumption , have already in most cases become a red alert and urgent call to action.

The planet has been in risky conditions for several decades that call for strong lines of involvement on the part of each and every one of the actors in society. From an urgent call to declare a climate emergency, through individual changes in vision about the use of our natural and material resources, to the arrival of clean energy sources, hybrid mobility alternatives, among many other strategies in favor of a more livable world for future generations.

Drive the future

At the beginning of 2021, still in a state of restriction at the beginning of the most recent health crisis, one of the main sustainable mobility alternatives in Mexico City, the bicycle, record an increase of 221% against the decrease in the use of public transport by 50%, which also represents a significant reduction in polluting emissions for the environment.
