The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
The week includes bike tours around the city, Bike to Work Day and Award Ceremony for the Cycling-Friendly Office Contest. On the weekend the city will close a very congested block for traffic and transform it into a pedestrian zone. EMW will be a test and the city hopes to continue the practice for all weekends.
