As an encouragement to the revitalization of the Old Town, health promotion and less use of cars, we decided to close old town for all traffic. Streets, roads and parking lots also became playgrounds for various sports, children's workshops and other activities. So we added additional value to whole municipality. With Erasmus+ sport event we promoted lots of different sports clubs in municipality of Črnomelj and so they got some new members and bigger visibility. Furthermore we promoted the awareness of physical activity and healthy lifestyle.
