The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Provođenje foto natječaja kojim će građani fotografijama ukazati na probleme u gradu i na moguća rješenja te će na taj način sudjelovati u planiranju i oblikovanju grada.
Tjekom ove godine organizira se veći broj radionica, provode se ankete i zaprimaju se prijedlozi i mišljenja građana o uređenju zaštićene povijesne cjeline "Zvijezda", s naglaskom na mogućnost smanjenja prometa na najmanju moguću mjeru, povećanje pješačkih površina.
