Promoting Sustainable Mobility
European Mobility Week takes place each year from the 16th September to the 22nd September. It involves over 2,000 towns and cities throughout Europe highlighting the necessity for changes in behaviour in relation to mobility.
The objective of European Mobility Week is to faciliate widespread debate on the necessity for changes in travel patterns and in particular the need to reduce individual car use.
The Week provides a platform to:
- Raise public awareness of growing concerns such as air pollution, road safety and climate change.
- Contribute to public awareness of the damage to the environment and quality of life that certain mobility trends generate.
- Promote existing policies, initiatives and best practices related to sustainable mobility.
European Mobility Week provides an opportunity to consider the impact of how you travel, has on your health, the environment and your personal finances.
The Week provides the ideal opportunity to experience alternative transport options including walking, cycling, public transport, car pooling etc
