Wednesday, 18 September: awareness-raising campaign on road safety and traffic-calming near schools
The aim of the campaign – which also includes a competition – is to raise awareness among schoolchildren, their parents and other road users travelling through school zones of the need for traffic-calming in these areas, and more generally, to heighten road safety awareness.
Schoolchildren are encouraged to walk or cycle to school. School-goers taking part in the campaign will be given a special sticker every day. Those who manage to collect the most stickers will receive a special prize at an official awards ceremony in October.
Thursday, 19 September: inclusion and mobility for all
An awareness day to draw attention to inclusive and safe methods of transport for all. Members of the public will be given the opportunity to try out various modes of transport – including some lesser known ones – on a signposted circuit. The circuit will be open to cyclists, pedestrians and wheelchair users, as well as various adapted bikes such as joëllettes, bécassines and tandems.
A number of performances and activities are also planned, including:
- Majorettes de Luxembourg
- Ile aux clowns
- Face-painting workshops for children
- Concert by Flatbush
- Food and drinks
- Information booths
This event, which is coordinated by the City, is organised with the support of several partners, including Info-Handicap, the CFL, the Verkéiersverbond, Luxtram, Fonds Kirchberg, Luxairport, Back to Sport, the non-profit association Tricentenaire, Adapth, the Association Nationale des Victimes de la Route and Fondation Lëtzebuerger Blannevereenegung.
