It’s Bike Friday again. This time we offered a bio breakfast to our faithful pedallers in our Belliard 68 building. I can sense that these and other associated initiatives are having a steady effect in changing habits. Last week the European Voice carried an article entitled ‘driving cars out of the Commission’. The article stated that the Commission had been ‘outflanked’ by the European Economic and Social Committee, since we have had a subsidy programme for public transport in place for almost one year now. Well, when I introduced the measure it wasn’t with any intention of outflanking other institutions. The article goes on to quote me as saying that the scheme had been a success – and that is the important thing: ‘We have managed to change a lot of people’s habits, and it is good for them, for the institution and also for the environment,’ he said. Indeed I did.
