European Mobility Week is an annual campaign on sustainable urban mobility, aiming to encourage local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite their citizens to try out alternatives to car use. This year´s edition of European Mobility Week - which runs from 16 to 22 September - focuses on Improving City Climates.
Local authorities organising activities within the framework of European Mobility Week are invited to sign the EMW charter and to register their activities on www.mobilityweek.eu/-Participating-. Participating towns and cities are also encouraged to apply for the European Mobility Week Award 2009. The application procedure, eligibility criteria and application form can now be consulted at www.mobilityweek.eu/Mobility-Award. The awarding ceremony will be organised in Brussels in February 2010 in the presence of the European Commissioner for Environment. The winning local authority will be awarded with a free promotional video to highlight its achievements as a champion of sustainable urban transport in Europe.For more information on European Mobility Week and the Award scheme, contact Peter Staelens at +32-2-552 08 66 or mail to peter.staelens(at)eurocities.eu.
