Within the framework of its Sustainable Urban Mobility campaign, the European Commission today announced the 20 winning actions set to receive up to EUR 7000 each in financial support.
The money will be used to further the activities of the winning initiatives promoting sustainable urban mobility. The list of the 20 winners can be found here. European Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas, responsible for transport said, "The European Commission has earmarked more than EUR 500 000 over three years for practical support to active campaigners promoting sustainable urban mobility in European cities. Providing the most effective campaigners across Europe with increased visibility and up to EUR 7000 represents a proactive step to encourage European citizens to diversify the transportation they use." If you are not among the winners, don't despair: the next call for funding applications will open in March 2013! Groups of individuals as well as non-commercial entities (schools, NGOs, public administrations, etc.) are eligible to apply.
