PROVINCIA DI ROMA organises activities during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2009, taking into account the annual theme.

“Waiting for the EMW”:
• Province of Rome has stuck, in 2009, to an European Project, called “Move Together”, that promotes a new culture of mobility with the contribution of public administrations and citizens. The intentions of the initiative is convincing citizens and administrations to become more responsible in defending the environment through better choices in theme of sustainable mobility. From 7th to 14th of September we’re going to organize a show of the project, in which will be also introduce a specific project, made by one of the citizens that had participated to “Move Together”, on an example of intermodality in public transport.
• This year, Province of Rome patronizes the event called “Bicistaffetta” organised by Ruotalibera – FIAB Roma, Ostia in Bici and NaturAmici (www.bicistaffettafiab09.org). Every year, “Bicistaffetta” identifies tourist runs, and promotes the use of the bicycle, that emphasizes the beauty of the surrounding environment. The event is going to start on 8th until 12th of September. On 4th of September we’re going to have a press conference in Palazzo Valentini.

Activities during the EMW:
• Opening, in by experimental during the week, of a counter of consultation held by the Mobility Manager of the Province, for the cities of the Province of Rome, to plan together a mobility “environment-friendly” for the employees of local administrations
• Organization of an event based on a new culture of mobility, located in a town of the Province, by closing a road or a square for a meeting with some writers that have described the trip, the move, the use and the knowledge of a way to move by train or by bicycle being used, rediscovering the pleasure to observe the places and appreciating the local identities. The event could foresee the reading of passages drawn by some books and artistic moments.
