Activities within the week Activities within the week

Veles organises activities during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2022, taking into account the annual theme.

16 September
Promotion of the Pump track - the realization of the European Mobility Week (EMW) 2022 will start with a creative-educational workshop for the youngest of our fellow citizens, the children from Children's Kindergarten "Dimche Mirchev". Learning from the elder children from primary schools, through demonstrations and discussions on bicycle maintenance essentials. The second part of the activity is bicycle-driving practice.
Objectives: Teaching our kids that bike riding benefits both their health and the health of our environment gives them two great reasons to keep riding throughout their lifetime.

Промоција на Pump track - реализацијата на Европската недела на мобилност (EMW) 2022 ќе започне со креативно-едукативна работилница со најмалите наши сограѓани, децата од ОЈУДГ „Димче Мирчев“. Учење од постарите деца од основните училишта, преку демонстрации и дискусии за најважните работи за возење на велосипедот. Вториот дел од активноста е заедничко возење велосипед.
Цели: Учење на децата од најрана возраст дека возењето велосипед влијае позитивно и на нивното здравје и на заштита на животната околина - две одлични причини да продолжат да возат велосипед во текот на нивниот живот.

22 September
Car Free Day - The idea for EMW 2022 is to raise the organization to a higher level, by achieving close cooperation between the embassies of EU member states, but also others countries, with the Municipality of Veles. The close cooperation with the embassies is going to be accomplished by presence of the ambassadors on the closing day of EMW 2022 – Car Free Day, 22 September. On the street that will be closed for traffic that day, several activities are planned for young people: cycling, playing with balls, drawing, writing motivational quotes related to urban mobility... The purpose of the activities is to socialize with the youngest by cycling, walking, playing and/or drawing, which contributes to raising awareness of young people in Veles not only for a healthy lifestyle, but also for environmental protection by use of alternative forms of transport. Thus, we set a positive example of most successful leaders in our society that promote healthy life style and invest in a better tomorrow.

Ден без автомобили - Идејата за EMW 2022 е организацијата да се подигне на повисоко ниво, преку остварување тесна соработка меѓу амбасадите на земјите-членки на ЕУ, но и други земји, со општина Велес. Блиската соработка со амбасадите ќе се оствари со присуство на амбасадорите на денот на затворањето на EMW 2022 – Ден без автомобили, 22 септември. На улицата која тој ден ќе биде затворена за сообраќај предвидени се повеќе активности за младите: возење велосипед, играње со топки, цртање, пишување мотивациони цитати поврзани со урбаната мобилност... Целта на активностите е дружење со најмладите од возење велосипед, пешачење, игра и/или цртање, што придонесува за подигање на свеста на младите во Велес не само за здрав начин на живот, туку и за заштита на животната средина со користење на алтернативни форми на транспорт. Со ова, амбасадорите даваат пример дека и најуспешните водат здрав начин на живот и инвестираат во подобро утре.
