Sustainability-themed field trips will be organised every weekend by the LPP's mountaineering and cycling clubs.

A campaign, co-organised by Ljubljana and Dutch beer giant Heineken, will promote cycling as an everyday form of mobility and contribute to Ljubljana's cycling infrastructure.

During World Car Free Day on 22 September, motor traffic will be limited on roads in all 17 city districts and riding city buses will be free of charge.

At the end of September, Ljubljana will host the 16th Festival of the Third Age with workshops and other activities for the elderly.
