EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK 2018: Registration now open
Mix & Move!
This year’s EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK encourages us to explore the many different options available for getting from A to B, and to think about the mode that best suits our particular journey. By embracing the concept of multimodality and introducing some sustainable transport methods into our journeys, not only can we have a positive impact on the environment, we may just find that we’re fitter and happier, with some extra spending money too!
Registration can be made online until the start of the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK.
Towns and cities must carry out at least one of the three criteria below to be eligible for registration:
- Week of activities
Organise activities that celebrate sustainable urban transport. The celebrations can take any form - from guided bike rides to street games to public lectures. As long as the activities promote public transport, cycling and walking, and other forms of sustainable mobility, they're valid.
- Permanent measures
Permanent measures contribute to people making sustainable transport choices. These measures don’t need to be expensive: the aim is to show the commitment of the town or city to sustainable urban mobility.
- Car-free day
Cities carry out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic and instead opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Local authorities that commit to carrying out all three criteria - holding a week of activities, implementing permanent measures, and holding a Car-Free Day - will be designated as 'Golden Participants' and become eligible to apply for the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Awards.
