On April 7th the Day of the Transhumance Paths will be celebrated

On April 7th, 2019, the Day of the Transhumance Paths will be celebrated in Spain. The NGO Ecologistas en Acción and the platform Plataforma Ibérica por los Caminos Públicos set up this initiative, which aims at raising awareness on the importance of the transhumance paths and the need to conserve this unique cultural and landscape heritage. Up to 50 associations will participate on this day (see the interactive map of all the events organised on that day). This includes associations defending public roads and livestock routes, but also nature conservation, hiking, cycling, and neighbourhood associations. The intention is to turn this day into an annual event, to avoid the disappearance of this tradition and celebrate the values of transhumance paths in Spain.
