The European Commission has today released the names of another 18 winning actions to be awarded funding. Each action will receive up to EUR 7000. This financial support will enable campaigners involved in a range of pursuits to expand their activities promoting sustainable urban mobility. In July 2012, the European Commission launched the Sustainable Urban Mobility campaign. Under the slogan ‘Do the Right Mix’, the campaign showcases and supports local, regional, and national promotional actions across Europe. The central aim is to encourage EU citizens to embrace multi-modality – that is to say to combine or ‘mix’ multiple modes of transport in their everyday lives. Since the launch of the campaign in 2012, nearly 380 sustainable urban mobility actions have been registered on the central Do The Right Mix website. The ongoing and upcoming actions are displayed on the innovative Mobility Map, which provides enhanced Europe-wide visibility for campaigners. The website also features a fun and interactive Facebook game in which users must choose the most sustainable transport options for the central character, Edgar, and can win a foldable bike. The second call for funding saw 74 applications from 18 eligible countries. The application process was open until 31 May 2013 and successful applicants were selected by a panel of expert judges, all experienced in the field of sustainable urban mobility. One outstanding activity in each country was granted financial support. You can view the full list of winners.
