Participation 2012

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Lunedì 17 settembre (Scuola Media Statale ore 9.00 – 14.00) – Laboratorio di educazione ambientale interdisciplinare su “Move in the right direction: pedalare forte, guardare dritto davanti a sé!”

Tale laboratorio sarà fortemente ispirato da una celebre frase che Fausto Coppi gridò al poeta Alfonso Gatto nel maggio del 1949 quando questi confessò che non sapeva andare in bicicletta e il Campionissimo tentò di insegnargli a tenersi in sella urlando all’impaurio Poeta “…pedalare forte, guardare dritto davanti a sé!”, un’esortazione che vibrava di quello spirito da cui erano animati gli uomini che stavano ricostruendo l’Italia, e che al presente deve esser trasmesso ai nostri adolescenti guidati nello scegliere la giusta direzione negli studi e nel proprio divenire adulti.
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.
