A project from Škoda to fight isolation
The Tabernas Desert, in Almería, is one of the most affected regions.
Škoda proposes to fight isolation, one of the reasons that has led many to leave.
Škoda stagecoach aims to facilitate the daily lives of those who are reluctant to leave the desert.
The Stagecoach helps overcome the daily problems that the remaining inhabitants of the desert face due to the lack of transport connections.
So we are launching
"The Desert Cowboys" initiative.
A tribute to those who continue to live in the Tabernas Desert (Almeria) and who face, on a daily basis, the threat of isolation.
In 2015 we were already busy fighting against isolation in Valdelinares, the highest village in Spain, and we saved their school which was in danger of having to close because of the lack of children.
The highest village in Spain and its school were in danger of disappearing. Its inhabitants and Škoda joined forces to defeat isolation.
The inhabitants of Valdelinares remain faithful to their village in spite of the adverse conditions caused by their isolation and the extreme cold.
The villages of the Desert of Tabernas and Valdelinares are just a few examples of the hundreds of villages that are suffering desolation.
