Participation 2008

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
La Settimana europea della Mobilità è una straordinaria occasione che tutte le città del continente hanno per promuovere la mobilità sostenibile, un nuovo modo di muoversi in città.
Quest'anno, a Reggio Emilia, abbiamo voluto dedicare le iniziative principali al tema della SICUREZZA DELLE NOSTRE STRADE, soprattutto nei quartieri e nelle zone residenziali. Abitare su strade sicure è fondamentale sia per ridurre gli incidenti sia per restituire le strade a chi più le vive, ovvero ai bambini e agli anziani.
