Yesterday evening the European Commission announced the winners of the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Awards 2018, and the 7th Award for Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) at a ceremony in Brussels (Belgium). 

Lisbon (Portugal) was revealed as the winner of the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award 2018 for larger municipalities, with Lindau (Germany) taking home the award for smaller municipalities. The 7th SUMP Award was won by Greater Manchester (UK).

The cities awards were presented with their awards by Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport, and Jürgen Müller, Head of Cabinet for Karmenu Vella, European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries.

The EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Awards recognise local authorities judged to have organised the most impressive set of activities between 16 – 22 September. The awards are given out in two categories: one for municipalities with over 50,000 inhabitants and one for smaller municipalities below this threshold.

The SUMP Award celebrates local and regional authorities for excellence in sustainable urban mobility planning.
