The sixth Ipoh Car-Free Day with a “green” concept attracted some 3,000 people. Among the activities lined up during the three-hour programme were silat demonstration, aerobics (senamrobik), angklung presentation and percussion performance. Busking, cycling, rollerblading and also street soccer by MBI Soccerkids helped transform Jalan Raja DiHilir into a carnival ground.
Members of non-governmental organisation Ipoh City Watch were present to create awareness on the importance of recycling and cleanliness.
Ipoh City Mayor Dato’ Zamri Man was confident that the Ipoh Car-Free Day programme will help to realise the council’s objective to turn Ipoh into a low carbon city, besides promoting it as a tourist spot.
According to Perak State Executive Councillor for Education, Science, Environment and Green Technology Y.B. Dr. Amin Zakaria, who was also present, the car-free day programme is most appropriate in caring for Mother Nature, as well as in the promotion of green technology.
