Participation 2020

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
16 September
Moita municipality will cooperate with the regional Energy Agency, Senergia, in lauching the Peddy App. This is an IT application for mobile phones that promotes and rewards the activity of walking, to and from school and inside the territory of the participant municipalities, leading people to visit places with cultural, historic and natural heritage, as well as artistic features. This App measures the distance walked by each user, both during the week and the weekends, and atributes a value, which is greater if the user visits the above mentioned places. From November 2020 till March 2021 it will count the total distance run by each participant and will attribute both individual as collective prizes (to schools). Peddy App will be promoted next to all 2nd/3rd grade schools (students aged 10-14 years) and secondary schools (students aged 15-18 years) and is directed no only to students, but also to teachers, other school staff, parents and anyone that wishes to support a certain school; all can install this App in their mobile phones and their walkings will be registered and count for the collective competition.
