Participation 2006

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
We will put up a tent in town from where we will hand out information about climate change and how the municipality deals with it.
A sort of walking quiz with questions about climate change is going to start and finish in the tent.
If possible, people will be able to give a "climate promise" based on their day to day life.
There will be lectures about climate change, transports, energy etc.
We will provide a guided visit at the digestion plant and there will be a parade with environmental vehicles.
One day we are going to organize activities together with the schools. Those activities will be:
parents and children walking together to school instead of taking the car, an outing where the children either walk or bike in our biosphere reserve and a day at school with a special climate change theme.
There will also be one day when bicycling is promoted, for example by handing out free breakfast to bicyclists on their way to work. On the car free day (which we call "In town without my petrol car") there will be an exhibition of environmental vehicles.
