The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
El uso de transportes limpios y eficientes, redunda en un beneficio colectivo para la sociedad. Este año las actividades que se realizarán durante la semana Europea de la Movilidad, al igual que años anteriores, están enfocadas hacia modos de transporte menos conttaminantes con el entorno. El uso de la bicicleta es fundamental si queremos una ciudad con menos circulación de coches y un medio ambiente libre de contaminación.
