Activities within the week Activities within the week

Dingli organises activities during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2023, taking into account the annual theme.

All week
16th- 22nd: Online Awareness Campaign

We will be conducting an awareness campaign, mostly on the various social media available online. The course would run for the full duration of European Mobility Week, and it involves the posting of a minimum of one item related to the annual theme, which in 2023 is ‘Save Energy’.
The awareness campaign conducted by Dingli Swallows FC and Youth Nursery will feature different types of media such as posters, videos and the like with the participation of players of the team, technical staff such as coaches, professionals in the field and other athletes who may want to contribute their efforts towards the cause. This content will range from information by the book to personal experiences of the people involved in the delivery of this material. Of course, cross promotion from other entities and organisations would be appreciated.

The benefits from a similar campaign would be:
- Conversely to a one-day event, spanning over a week would feed the information slowly and not feel overwhelming
- Bigger reach due to the advantage of not needing the target audience to be physically in place

17th September – Segway Heritage Trail

A heritage trail with provided Segways will also take place on the 17th, on which the residents may explore some of the most precious heritage that we have right in our hometown of Dingli.
18 September
18th September – Bike Ride

A bike ride, spanning roughly between 6km to 10km will be organized by the Dingli Scouts around the town of Dingli and its surroundings. Upon reaching the Maddalena Chapel in the outskirts of the village, the children and teenagers will form a shape of a bicycle to promote the usage of bicyces throughout the locality. From there, the bike ride will resume. This event will be open to anyone who wants to participate.
19 September
19th September – Pedometer Challenge

Participants of this pedometer challenge will be using their smartphone to keep track of the number of paces done in the shortest time. The target aim of this challenge is to encourage more residents to walk to their destinations instead of relying on private transport. Bikes and e-bikes are also allowed throughout this event. This challenge will pass through the Dingli Heritage Trail, and end towards Fawwara in the limits of Siggiewi. This awareness campaign is being taken care of by the Ghaqda Muzikali Santa Marija in collaboration with the Dingli Local Council to motivate people to avoid the use of vehicles and other forms of transportation, and instead walk or bike to where they want to go.
20 September
20th September – Street Sports

During the morning, next to the Dingli football ground in Triq il-Gvernatur William Reid, the Dingli Swallows FC together with its Youth Nursery will be organizing half a day of sporting activities, with the aim of promoting the use of alternative transport other than cars and other private vehicles. There will be free trials of Segways and e-bikes, with a Segway leader also on location to offer guidance in regards to this method of transportation. Bike sports activities aimed at children will also be held in the street.
