1500 Join Ipoh Car-Free Day

This morning’s 56th edition of Ipoh Car-Free Day attracted some 1,500 participants. The monthly programme, with the slogan “Cleaner, Greener & Smart Lifestyle” is aimed to increase awareness among the community on the importance of environmental care, and educate the people on living a green and low-carbon lifestyle. The objective of Ipoh Car-Free Day is to achieve the vision of the Ipoh City Council towards a low-carbon city by 2030.

This month’s theme is Children’s Day, to coincide with the worldwide celebration on 20th November annually. In line with this, a list of special events was organised, such as “Pintar Pintas”. 150 children of Ipoh City Council staff joined in the fun to make the event a success.

Other activities including Taekwando, that challenge physical intelligence as well as mental endurance, saw 90 children from 4 to 15 years old demonstrating their martial arts techniques.

To complement this month’s car-free day event, a 3.5km fun run was also organised, with the 200 runners vying for cash prizes, trophies and medals.
