Sep 16–22, 2018
Since 2002, EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK has sought to improve public health and quality of life through promoting clean mobility and sustainable urban transport. The campaign gives people the chance to explore the role of city streets and to experiment with practical solutions to tackle urban challenges, such as air pollution.
The 17th annual EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK kicks off on September 16, 2018. This is a week-long campaign in European towns and cities that traditionally concludes with the "In Town without My Car" day on September 22.
The initiative works to encourage a modal shift from individual car use to more sustainable modes of transport, such as cycling, walking or public transport. Towns and cities are invited to register their actions at the initiative's website: http://www.mobilityweek.eu/. Over 2,500 cities from 50 countries participated in 2017 - a record year – while 2018 is expected to mark a hat-trick of records, with a third year-on-year increase!
The European secretariat is led by Eurocities, and is co-hosted by the REC together with ICLEI: Local Governments for Sustainability and POLIS – Cities and Regions for Transport Innovation.
