29 May: historic gathering for the air

«When 5,000 of you show up, the subject will be taken seriously» had replied the Sub-Prefect of Haute-Savoie to citizens, about the local air pollution issue… Convinced that at least 5,000 people do worry about this problem and want the air quality to improve locally, citizens of the Mont-Blanc area have decided to take up the challenge and are organising a huge rally, to get our authorities to take notice.

Sunday 29 May, at Passy Lake, from 12:00 and will end with a concert starting at 16:30.
