The World Vapers’ Alliance iconic Vape Bus tour is starting next week in BARCELONA sharing the message that 19 million lives can be saved in Europe if policymakers embrace pro-vaping policies in the fight against smoking.
We will be in Barcelona from the 18th to 20th of August, touring the city and visiting vape shops. The Vape Bus will be at La Maquinista on Friday, 20th of August, where the World Vapers’ Alliance team will be meeting vapers and supporters. There will be prizes, giveaways and a chance for YOU to tell the world how vaping saved your life.
We chose Barcelona as our starting point because smoking is still the leading cause of preventable diseases in Spain, with an average of 165 Spanish smokers dying each day and over 9 million citizens smoking daily. If Spanish and EU politicians embrace vaping then 2.4 million lives can be saved in Spain, and 19 million in Europe.
We are bringing the Vape Bus to Barcelona to help raise the voice of Spanish vapers and fight for pro-vaping policies across Spain and the EU.
This year is critical for the future of vaping rights in Europe, and across the world. Two major milestones – the EU’s ‘TPD’ laws and the global COP conference – will determine if governments seize the opportunity to save millions of lives or deny them the right to a smoke-free life. The Vape Bus will gather the stories of vapers and ensure that those making policy decisions are confronted with the evidence and the voices of vapers.
We want to make this year the year that the world embraces one of the greatest public health inventions of the century – vaping. To achieve this, it is vital that the voices of vapers are heard. After Barcelona, the Vape Bus will continue its journey in major cities across Europe, including Milan, Munich, Berlin, London, Brussels, and Geneva.
If you can’t make it to Barcelona, you can still support the campaign by signing up and following the bus on its journey. Your favourite vape store can also be part of the Vape Bus tour if you send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together we can make a change – #BACKVAPINGBEATSMOKING!
