The European Mobility Week (EMW) aims to influence mobility and urban transport issues for the long-term as well as to improve health and quality of life of European citizens. The EMW is organised each year from 16 to 22 September and will celebrate its seventh edition this year under the theme of ‘CLEAN AIR FOR ALL’. Participating local authorities organise a week of activities promoting clean modes of transport, invite citizens and stakeholders to express their visions on their urban transport system as well as organise a car-free day on 22 September.
Each year more and more cities and towns decide to join the campaign. In 2007, more than 2,000 cities participated in the European Mobility Week and to the ‘In Town Without My Car’ day, involving around 200 million citizens in more than 35 countries. The initiative, while initially European, has now spread to other parts of the world and it is attaining worldwide dimensions.
The EMW campaign represents a great opportunity to involve all European cities and citizens around the common theme of sustainable transport in urban areas. The aim is to change behaviour and make progress towards a more sustainable transport strategy for Europe.
