Participation 2009

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Together with Östsam Regional Development Council (Regionförbundet Östsam)
we are planning following activities ;

· There will be advertisements in the local papers announcing which activities that will take place in the region during this week. The activities will go under the name”Klimatsmart i Östergötland” which means Climate Smart region.

· As an advertisement for the European mobility week there will be cars that have covers saying ”Give your car a day off on the 22th of September!” placed out, from 16th of September and throughout the whole European mobility week. The cars will be strategically placed, in busy places, such as roundabouts or in the town square.

· All the local authorities make an extra effort in order to encourage all those citizens who choose an environmentally friendly and sound transport alternative on the 22th of September.

· During the week two seminars will be held, these seminars are collaboration between the municipality of Norrköping and the project EXPEDITIONSVERIGE.SE. The speaker during the seminares is photographer and filmmaker Mattias Klum. These seminars will be open to both students and the general public. Visitors during these seminars will be offered a reflector tag shaped as a bus and Climate Smart maps with sustainable transportation modes within the municipality marked out. Also employees within the municipality will be encouraged, through a competition, to leave their cars at home and choose a sustainable transportation to work at least once during this week.
