Promoted by the European Commission, European Mobility Week is an annual campaign on sustainable urban mobility. The goal of the campaign, which runs from 16 to 22 September every year, is to encourage local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite their citizens to try out alternatives to car use, be it commuting on foot, by bicycle or by public transport.
The theme this year is Moving in the Right Direction!
Who would not want to live in a city where the air is clean and where there is little noise. A place free of congestion, where getting around town is easy and citizens enjoy a high quality of life. A city that you are proud of because it is protecting the climate and that is known across Europe for being innovative and forward looking. With some strategic thinking it is possible to make this vision a reality.
