Participation 2007

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
The City of Velika Gorica is for the first time taking participation in the project of European Mobility Week. As the circumstance were such and we had to make the preparations in such a short notice, our activities in marking this Week are not as numbered as they could have been as if the preparation period should have been longer.
We consider our participation this year to be valuable experience and asset to our plans for the European Mobility Week activities in the City of Velika Gorica in 2008.
We are looking forward to it.
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:
The street in question is the central traffic road located in the very Centreof the City of the Velika Gorica. Two primary schools, bus terminal, Shopping Mall and the other public institutions are connected directly to this street. We are of the opinion that the traffic restriction even only for two hours will be significant event and will fulfil the purpose of the "European Mobility Week"
