The EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK campaign provides an opportunity for local and regional governments to present sustainable mobility alternatives to local residents and to explain the challenges that cities and towns are facing. By taking part, towns and cities can showcase the benefits of cleaner transport choices and make progress towards better mobility in Europe.
Local and regional authorities use EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK as an opportunity to test new transport measures and get feedback from local citizens. It is also an excellent opportunity for local stakeholders to get together and discuss the different aspects of mobility and air quality, find innovative solutions to reduce car-use and transport emissions, and test new technologies and planning measures.
Measured, quantitative outcomes / project impact
Through the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK campaign, ICLEI aims to encourage local authorities to test and implement sustainable mobility measures. Within the campaign, ICLEI is responsible for coordinating and carrying out regular dissemination and promotion activities. By taking part in the campaign, towns and cities also use the campaign to promote their sustainable mobility work, in turn gaining more recognition on an international stage, and use it as a platform to introduce more permanent sustainable mobility measures.
The main event takes place from 16-22 September each year, culminating in the popular Car-Free Day. Local authorities are encouraged to participate in the campaign, using the main week to try out innovative planning measures, promote new infrastructure and technologies, measure air quality, and get feedback from the public.
