On Thursday, 23 May 2019, at 11 a.m., the Farnesina will host the “MAECI Sustainable Mobility Day”, at the presence of the Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Manlio Di Stefano.
The Event aims to promote sustainable mobility and integrated transport systems and schedules two sessions:
11:00 a.m. – Outside the Farnesina, Olympic Stadium side
- Inauguration of the new bicycle parking area financed by the Municipality of the Capital of Rome.
The Day’s agenda also includes the possibility of testing electric vehicles in view of the coming into effect of a convention signed with the SharenGo electric carsharing service providing advantageous conditions for the Foreign Ministry’s personnel.
An Information service will be available on the opening of a free bicycle parking area for MAECI personnel in the proximity of the A Metro line Ottaviano Station by the Guglielmo Marconi University (“bike bike to work project”).
The “bike bike to work” project is the fruit of a partnership between the MAECI, the Municipality of Rome and the Guglielmo Marconi University to reduce the Ministry’s environmental footprint and promote the personnel’s organizational wellbeing by riding bicycles to work.
Afterwards – Inside the Farnesina, Floor -1
- opening of the dressing room to enable those who ride a bicycle to work to change inside the building.
The initiative is part of the Farnesina Green Project and is consistent with the Plastic Free Project. Both projects received an award at the Forum PA 2019 in the “Environment and Sustainability” section.
The event will open with remarks by the Director General for Administration, IT and Communications, Nicandro Cascardi, followed by a greeting from the President of the 15th District of the Municipality of Rome, Stefano Simonelli, and by the Director General for Resources and Innovation, Renato Varriale. The event will close with remarks by the Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI), Manlio Di Stefano.
