Slow sounds good to me.

Bigastro has been subscribing for months to the movement Città Slow (Slow Cities) of Spain.

This calm, hospitable, cultural and natural movement that is characterized by a slowed down style of life, is settling little by little in our territories as a counterpart to the frenetic rate of life and present development.

As a result of the celebration of the day " Città Slow: A way to live", in October of 2006, Bigastro signed up to join this international network. The agreement was ratified by Roberto Angelucci, President the International of this movement when he was in Bigastro on the occasion of the first Forum of Cittá Slow in Spain.

Just looking at the statistics for the town's population, 10% or 1.116 people living in Biagastro in 2005 were older than us. Imagine how that figure will improve as more people subscribe to a more gentle pace of life.

Clicking on the title of this post takes you to a video which explains the concept.
