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:
Saturday September 20 part of of Nygatan around Hospitalstorget will be car restricted area. An event that we call Street life is conducted on Saturday. The 15 parking spaces available along the street section will be adorned and decorated by different actors from associations, cultural practitioners, community planners and eventually also bike clubs. We will also have bike safari for kids who will learn absout traffic signs and get a "bike driving license." There is also a bicycle basket flea market.
On Thursday, September 18th, we encourage pedestrians and cyclists and we market Saturday's event.

Vi stänger av delar av Nygatan runt Hospitalstorget lördagen den 20 sep. Ett event som vi kallar för Gatuliv genomförs på lördagen. Då kommer de 15 parkeringsplatser som finns utmed den gatudelen att smyckas och inredas av olika aktörer från föreningslivet, kulturutövare, samhällsplanerare och ev.cykelklubbar. Vi kommer även att ha cykelsafari för barnen som får lära sig trafikskyltar och får ett "cykelkörkort". Det blir även en cykelkorgsloppis.
På torsdagen den 18 sep uppmuntrar vi gångare och cyklister och marknadsför lördagens event.
