The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Durante a Semana Europeia da Mobilidade irá haver uma grande exposição à semelhança do ano anterior de "Energias Renováveis/Fornos Solares/Mobilidade Sustentável" de 19 a 22 de Setembro. Pretende-se que esta mostra conte, nomeadamente, com stands de entidades públicas e privadas empenhadas na divulgação das energias alternativas renováveis, como contributo para a promoção das energias renováveis e da mobilidade sustentável.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
A Zona encerrada ao trânsito automóvel insere-se no Núcleo Histórico da Cidade Velha.
Tentando-se desta forma aumentar a consciencialização dos cidadãos para os efeitos na qualidade do ambiente, resultantes das suas escolhas sobre o modo de transporte, proporcionar aos cidadãos oportunidades para se deslocarem a pé, utilizarem a bicicleta e os transportes públicos, em vez do automóvel privado.
