EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK runs from 16–22 September each year, providing towns and cities with an opportunity to test out sustainable transport alternatives. By encouraging individuals to choose sustainable transport modes such as walking and cycling, we can lower our carbon emissions, improve the quality of our air, and make our urban areas more pleasant places to live and work. In recent years, EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK has taken on a more international character, with many towns and cities from outside of Europe joining the campaign. 2,500+ cities and towns, both European as well as global, took part in the initiative in 2017.
EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2018 is focusing on ‘multimodality’ – the mixing of transport modes within the same journey or for different trips. Many of us instinctively opt for the same method of transport when moving around without necessarily examining the needs of the specific journey. The car may be the best way to take your family to the seaside, for example, but is it the best way to get them to the city centre where space and access is often limited?
As a partner of the TUMI (Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative), the EcoMobility Alliance invites cities to join this international movement.

Walk21: Bogota – Walkable City
15 – 19 October, 2018
Background to The International Conference on Walking and Liveable Cities
Walk21 started in 2000 with a conference in London and the conference has been held every year since, in different cities around the world. Typically every other year the event has been hosted in Europe but every year always draws on the best information and presenters worldwide, and delegates come from around the globe.
The Walk21 conference series supports, encourages and inspires the Global Walking Network to:
- Confirm the importance of walking politically and in policy
- Provide an international platform for an inclusive discussion
- Acknowledge current research, practice and promotion
- Identify the need for future research and networking.
International delegates attending a Walk21 conference do so to have the opportunity to hear from leading professionals about programmes, policies and projects that really work and explore those themes in action through walking tours and visits arranged in the host city.
Walk21 conferences are well known and well respected as important events worldwide. Since 2002 the Walk21 conference has always attracted around 500 participants. The brand name (Walk21®) therefore has a valuable reputation as the international quality event where people meet. The event also highlights the ambitions of the host city and has a positive impact on the walking policy of the whole country. The event, above all, generates added international prestige for the host city and the involved organisations and institutions.

What is COP24
COP24 is the informal name for the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The UNFCCC is a “Rio Convention”, one of three adopted at the “Rio Earth Summit” in 1992. The UNFCCC entered into force on 21 March 1994. Today, it has near-universal membership. The countries that have ratified the Convention are called Parties to the Convention. Preventing “dangerous” human interference with the climate system is the ultimate aim of the UNFCCC.
The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme body of the UNFCCC Convention. It consists of the representatives of the Parties to the Convention. It holds its sessions every year. The COP takes decisions which are necessary to ensure the effective implementation of the provisions of the Convention and regularly reviews the implementation of these provisions.
In accordance with a decision of the 22nd Session of the Conference of the Parties to the Climate Convention (COP22) in Marrakesh in November 2016, the successive climate summit will be held in Poland. Poland was selected to host this event within the framework of the Eastern European Group (EEG).
Poland will hold the Presidency of the Climate Convention for the third time.
COP24 will take place from 3-14 December 2018, in Katowice, Poland.
One of the most important tasks of the 24th Session of the of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24) will be to work out and adopt a package of decisions ensuring the full implementation of the Paris Agreement, in accordance with the decisions adopted in Paris (COP21) and in Marrakesh (CMA1.1). Moreover, COP24 will include the so-called Facilitative Dialogue intended to support the implementation of national commitments.
In the course of the 2018 Climate Summit Poland would like to demonstrate how neutrality in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, i.e. a balance between CO2 emissions and its sequestration by soils and forests, can be attained.
