Participation 2009

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Glasgow City Council will begin European Mobility Week by organising a commuter challenge from the West End of the city to the City Centre. This will draw attention to the potential to use other forms of transport apart from the car and hopefully demonstrate the viability of sustainable forms of transport, benefiting the local climate. A range of school projects will be run throughout the week, again illustrating linkages between sustainable transport and climate change.
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:
South Frederick Street, between West George Street and Cochrane Street will be closed to traffic. This is the area immediately outside the City Chambers (HQ for Glasgow City Council).
