"Pedal for the Planet": 2,400 Cyclists Rally for Climate Action in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh, Cambodia - Over 2,400 cyclists took part in "Pedal for the Planet" Sunday 3 March, a collaborative effort between the European Union Delegation to Cambodia, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, and Phnom Penh City Hall. The event aimed to promote climate action through the power of cycling.

As part of a broader global initiative championing sustainability, "Pedal for the Planet" leveraged the communal spirit of cycling to highlight the role individual actions play in enhancing the health of our environment. The initiative transformed cycling from a simple mode of transportation into a potent symbol of commitment to reducing carbon emissions and embracing eco-friendly practices.

During the opening remarks, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Vath Chamroeun, extended his appreciation to the EU for spearheading a partnership that mobilizes the community towards environmental preservation and sustainable development. "We share common goals, including sporting activities, cultural exchanges, and the pursuit of environmental conservation," he remarked.

Echoing the urgency of environmental stewardship, EU Ambassador to Cambodia, Igor Driesmans, emphasized the critical need for immediate action to address global challenges like air and water pollution. "This event serves as a reminder that proactive measures are essential for maintaining the health of our planet. It's an opportunity not only for enjoyment but also for reflection on the future of our environment," the Ambassador stated.

The "Pedal for the Planet" event not only celebrated the joy of cycling but also served as a call to action, inspiring participants and spectators alike to consider the impact of their daily choices on the world's climate.
