Aljezur council launches awareness campaign on caravanning and wild camping

Last Updated on 23/06/2021 by VdB

The municipality of Aljezur promoted the placement of 8 mini billboards that replicate the campaign launched by the Região Turismo do Algarve about the network of reception to motor-caravaning in the region.

The message intends to pass in a positive way, an appeal to the use of the spaces licensed for this purpose, which in the case of Aljezur Municipality, exist in number of 2, being them the Parque de Campismo do Serrão in Aljezur and the recent Service Area for Motor Caravans (ASA) “Francelho on Wheels” in Tramelo, Alfambras.

These billboards were strategically placed in places of passage to the beaches and usually sought for this practice.

It was also launched in the social networks of this municipality, a short video that aims to demonstrate the impact of the improper practice of wild camping and motor caravanning. Images that intend to shock the result of these practices by people more “distracted” and “less careful” in a common good, in a Natural Park that should be deserving of a different treatment. We well know that not every camper and motor-caravanist, portrays himself in this formula and that is why we appeal to the combat of this negative branding and illegal practices in this territory.

At a time when important advances have been achieved in this matter and its regulation, such as the article 50 of the Road Code and the long awaited guidelines for the installation of ASAS in the territory of the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina.

It is increasingly important to raise awareness and also demonstrate that there are alternatives for lovers of these modalities, which promote and enhance respect for the natural environment.
