The European Commission has announced the six finalists of two awards which honour the actions of European cities in developing and promoting sustainable approaches to urban mobility.

European Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas, in charge of transport, and Commissioner for the Environment Janez Potočnik will present the awards at a ceremony on 24 March in Brussels, Belgium.

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) award is presented to local authorities which demonstrate excellence in developing and implementing their sustainable urban mobility plans to address their city’s mobility challenges. This year’s  award recognises cities with SUMPs illustrating the ‘integration of economic, social, and environmental policy criteria’, the theme of the 2013 awards.

The European Mobility Week (EMW) award rewards the local authority which is most actively promoting sustainable travel and introducing new measures to encourage a shift towards sustainable urban transport.
