Participation 2012

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Cassano d'Adda will devote an entire week to the theme of the mobility. In this 2012 European week there will be events for the school students and parents (photographic exposition, video making presentation), for young people (Sunday with the Local Police bike driving school), for the whole city (book presentation and readings, meeting with a local champion of bike) and the opening of a bike sharing service together with a day without car.
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:
The city center will be the protagonist of some of the activities such as the open air Sunday afternoon without car where the citizens will be invited to play, ride their bikes and the young citizens will have some special bike driving lessons from the Local Police officers. On this occasion, the square will be car free.
Implementing one or more new permanent measure(s), which contribute(s) to modal transfer from private car to environmentally sound means of transport.
