Stage 2: breathtaking views as we cross the National Park of Monfragüe!

We leave Castille-León, because the second stage takes us to Extremadura. The journey to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Caceres, final stop of this stage, was long but beautiful. Nature has been the main feature as we have crossed the spectacular Jerte valley, famous for its cherries and the beautiful Monfragüe National Park, where some surprised deer have witnessed our peloton.

Today we have traveled a longer distance than yesterday, 107 km, which gave us time to reflect on the importance of engaging society in climate action and on the best ways to communicate this problem. The general public and social organisations should implement the values and habits that are crucial to solve the climatic emergency we are in. Each individual has a key role to play as it is the sum of millions of small actions what makes a difference. But how do we involve all stakeholders in climate action? Drivers that promote a change in social behaviour (education, awareness, communication), are as essential as good policies to achieve exponential solutions.
