About:

European Mobility Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness about sustainable urban mobility. Events are organised with the support of the Directorates-General for the Environment and Transport of the European Commission. The aim of the campaign, which runs from the 16th to the 22nd of September every year, is to encourage European local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite their citizens to try out alternatives to single occupancy car use. 

 

Overview:
Since its introduction in 2002, the impact of European Mobility Week has steadily grown, both across Europe and around the world. In recent years, the campaign has spread to countries such as Argentina, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Canada and Vietnam. In 2013, 1,931 cities from 47 countries officially registered for the campaign. A  total of 8,623 permanent  measures  have been  implemented,  mainly  focusing  on  infrastructure  for cycling  and  walking,  traffic  calming,  improving transport  accessibility  and  raising  awareness about sustainable travel behaviour.

 

Opportunity:
The campaign represents an opportunity for participating cities and towns to demonstrate the importance of sustainable urban mobility and is a unique chance for local authorities to test their transport policies and present them to citizens.
