Participation 2015

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
We have two competitions running during the whole week, with prizes. In one competition we invite stores to use one of their parking spaces to something else than parking a car (for example a flea market). They can win an environmental education and get local publicity. The other competition is on Instagram, where everyone can tag themselves when they go to work and activities by bike, walking or by public transport.
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:
We arrange the event "Bicycle´s day" the 19th. We close the parking lot outside the municipal building to arrange a flea market for bikes. We also have bike service, a bike parade and a unicycle show.
Implementing one or more new permanent measure(s), which contribute(s) to modal transfer from private car to environmentally sound means of transport.
Permanent measures implemented this year:
New or improved bicycle facilities
  • Improvement of bicycle network (creation of new lanes, extension, renovation, signposting etc)
