Mobilising Mobility: EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK - Campaigns to support zero-emission mobility solutions

Cycling and walking are healthy, active and environmentally friendly ways to move around cities. The COVID-19 health crisis has further boosted these modes of efficient and zero-emission private transport. Several national and local authorities introduced large-scale programmes after the lockdown to further promote active mobility as the safest modes during these times.

In coordination with EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2020 campaign this webinar featured successful and award-winning cities for active mobility throughout Europe. Representing cities of different sizes, speakers presented their walking and cycling strategies and explained why an integrated policy is more than just painting cycling lanes on the asphalt.

How can planners and decision makers of middle-sized cities and international metropolises boost active modes of transport, while keeping their inhabitants safe?

The webinar was moderated by Balázs Németh.

Featured speakers were:

  • Maria Jose Rojo (Coordinator Active Travel & Health, Polis Network)
  • Jelena Nikolić (Advisor for sustainable urban mobility, Kruševac)
  • Sofie Walschap (Responsible for mobility and road safety, Brussels Capital Region)

The webinar was a Polis initiative in cooperation with the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2020 campaign
