Participation 2014

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Our main focus for the week is on public transport but we also have activities more strictly related to this years topic. For example we are going to take a couple of parking lots and change them to other uses like park and cycle parking. We also plan to use street art with messages around sustainable transports.

Vårt huvudfokus för veckan ligger på kollektivtrafiken, men vi har även aktiviteter som är mer strikt relaterade årets tema. Till exempel kommer att ändra ett par parkeringsplatser, som t.ex. till park-och cykelparkering. Vi planerar också att satsa på gatukonst med budskap som rör hållbara transporter.
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 zone is mainly the parking lots that are described above. On the "In town without my car”-day we also have an event/festival with public transport in focus that has to use a smaller part of the a city street called J A Selandersgata. The street is more of a local street without major car intensity.

Zonen är främst de parkeringsplatser som beskrivs ovan. Under "I stan utan min bil "-dagen har vi också ett evenemang / en festival med kollektivtrafik i fokus, där man använder en mindre del av en stadsgata som heter J A Selandersgatan. Gatan är en lokalgata utan hög bilintensitet.
