16 September
16th – 22nd: Online Awareness Campaign
We will be conducting an online awareness campaign on social media. This would run throughout the entire length of the mobility week (16-22 September) and can continue further during the European Week of Sports (23-29 September). It involves posting at least one item per day on the central theme of the European Mobility Week ‘Zero-emission mobility for all’ and the other sub-themes being ‘Environment and energy’, ‘Sustainable urban planning’ and ‘Sustainable transport’.

The awareness campaign conducted by Dingli Swallows FC and Youth Nursery will be done using different forms of media including posters, videos, interviews etc. with the possible participation of players, technical staff, professional people and other athletes. Cross-promotion of the online awareness campaign from other organisations is envisaged. Content will vary from information, useful tips and personal experiences.

The benefits of opting for an online campaign would be the following:
• During this uncertain time with Covid-19, there would not be any risk of postponing the event as it does not involve outdoor or mass activities.
• Rather than opting for a one-day event (like an information session), this would span over an entire week.
• Increased reach as people would not need to be present in the given place and time but can access the content at a convenient time.

16th – 22nd: Destination Survey
We will be conducting a more in-depth destination survey following last year’s recommendations on a survey done amongst members of local NGOs and children of the San Nikola Primary School in Had-Dingli. This year’s survey will be distributed to all local households. It will address the means of transport used by families in the locality of Had-Dingli. In the survey, we will discover the present use of transportation that families use and seek their proposals for alternative modes of transport from a selection given rather than by private cars.

The idea is to gather information on the mode of transport used by families in the locality of Had-Dingli, to promote more safe walking and safe cycling as an alternative especially for short destinations within the village to reduce traffic in peak hours, to reduce air and noise pollution and to increase open spaces within the locality. With this survey, the local council will be in a better position to decide on future environmentally-friendly transportation measures. The event is steered by the Dingli Swallows FCYN with the participation of Dingli Scouts and Kumitat Festa Esterna.

 16th September – Street football challenge between local NGOs and other people who wish to join in.

18th September 2020: Pedometer Challenge
#SMARTFEET Pedometer challenge: This will be organised by Kumitat Festa Esterna. Participants will use their mobile to count how many paces are done in the shortest time. This will encourage more people to walk instead of using cars to arrive from one destination to another. There will also be many participants who will travel with bicycles and/or e-bikes that were installed by the Had-Dingli local council earlier this year. The challenge will pass through part of the Had-Dingli Heritage Trail and ends up in the limits of Fawwara in Siggiewi. This awareness campaign will be raised by the Kumitat Festa Esterna and Local Council to encourage more people to use walking and cycling as a method of transportation. The event will promote zero-emission mobility for all, pedestrianisation, promotion of the road space as a shared space for safe walking and safe cycling and sustainable transport with the use of non-car modes.

 22nd September – Air Bag ramp. This event will be performed with the help of Regjun Tramuntana. This ramp (image below) was purchased as part of the Regjun Tramuntana commitment to help the community, particularly the younger generation. Regjun Tramuntana has purchased a practising Air Bag for BMX, Skateboarding, Scooter, Inline Skate and any other extreme sport. This Specialised air-filled ramp is used for practice sessions, permitting users to be more experimentative and daring but in a safe way, knowing that if they fall, they land on softer ground.

22nd September 2020: Car Free Day
Several roads will be closed to encourage pedestrianisation, promotion of the road space as a shared space, use of non-car modes and open spaces.
