Participation 2009

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
The Clearer Futures conference will once again take place (Thurs 17 Sep), engaging with local and national organisations about improving air quality.

The Go Free Festival (Sat 19 Sep) is an event in Weston Park with fair-like activities that should bring in a large crowd who can then be targeted with travel information and engaged about improving their climate.

Give it a Go campaign (beginning 21/22 Sep) is a direct mailing campaign with an environmental twist where we ask people to consider their travel options, in particular giving car drivers a free week of public transport.
Implementing one or more new permanent measure(s), which contribute(s) to modal transfer from private car to environmentally sound means of transport.
