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.
