Air pollution in cities is a direct cause of a large number of lung conditions, such as COPD and cancer, as well as heart and brain infarctions (strokes). Transportation is in many cases the first source of air pollutants, which include not only CO2, but the most toxic as CO, sulfur and nitrogen oxides, particles, ozone and VOCs.
A sustainable mobility policy should minimize the individual use of the car, and encourage other measures, such as walking, public transport, bicycle, and electric mobility in its different versions.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has a high quality public transport system, proof of this is the spectacular increase in passengers it has registered in recent years. The Sustainable Mobility Plan is currently being developed, which advocates the increase of pedestrian areas, use of bicycles, and the implementation of the Metroguagua, a bus with a high passenger capacity.
Following you can find further information on sustainable mobility in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and on the island of Gran Canaria.
Conference venues - sustainable transport

The Centro Cívico Suárez Naranjo is very close to the Facultad de Ciencias de la Educación, so the public transport service for getting to this venue is exactly the same mentioned above.
