FoodSafety4EU: Towards closer European collaboration on food safety

FOODSAFETY4EU

Food safety is a top priority for the European Commission. The central goal is to assure a high level of protection of human health through safe products by the food industry -Europe’s largest manufacturing and employment sector. The EU-funded FOODSAFETY4EU project will design, develop and release a multi-stakeholder platform for the future European Food Safety System (FSS). The platform aims at establishing a network of FSS actors at the national, European and international level. It will enable them to access resources and data efficiently, synchronise food safety research strategies, share and exchange scientific knowledge and contribute to transparent communication regarding the FSS. The FOODSAFETY4EU platform will maximise cooperation within the system and with the civil society boosting the co-creation of strategies and their translation into policies and funding programmes.

Mobility, healthcare centers and rights protection

A civic research-action promoted by Active Citizenship Network during 2014 with the aim to explore the relationship between mobility and access to healthcare in Italy. The focus is on road safety, disabled people and good practices.

239 articles were analyzed from January 2013 to August 2014 for a total of 180 reports.

A Final Report was presented during the European Mobility Week in the roundtable and the European webinar titled “Protecting Citizens' Rights: challenges and opportunities for EU passengers” organized by Active Citizenship Network in Rome on 16th September 2014.

The objective was to highlight the relevance of physical access to healthcare centers and, indirectly, to offer some insights for a proper implementation of the Cross-border healthcare Directive, to make sure that practical aspects related to the travel needs of the patients are not missed.

For Cittadinanzattiva-Active Citizenship Network, this work represents a point of connection between two extremely relevant issues: right of mobility and right to receive care.

EMW - European Mobility Week
The European Mobility Week is the most widespread campaign on sustainable mobility in the world. It takes place every year from 16 to 22 September. The aim of the campaign is to encourage European local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite their citizens to try out alternatives to car use.
Since its introduction in 2002, the impact of European Mobility Week has steadily grown, both across Europe and around the world. In 2011, a record number of 2,268 cities participated, representing approximately 156 million citizens. A total of 6,821 permanent measures have been implemented, mainly focusing on infrastructure for cycling and walking, traffic calming, improving transport accessibility and raising awareness about sustainable travel behaviour.

Every year, European Mobility Week looks at a different topic related to sustainable mobility, the so-called focal theme. Local authorities are required to organise activities for their citizens based on this theme. They are also encouraged to launch and promote permanent measures that support the theme.

European Mobility Week 2012 - 2013

European Mobility Week 2012 theme, “Moving in the right direction” focused on Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning. The aim of these thematic guidelines was to provide local European Mobility Week coordinators with background information on this theme and with inspiration for suitable campaign activities.

European Mobility Week 2013 “Clean air – it’s your move!” aims to clean up our air, and by doing so, create a healthier, happier Europe.
The facts are clear - cleaner cities are healthier cities. Air free from impurities leads to a longer life by an average of eight months, and has been proven to reduce the likelihood of respiratory and cardiovascular health issues. Conversely, air laced with pollutants such as particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide increases the risk of lung diseases, including asthma, pneumonia, and lung cancer. And it’s not only human health that is affected - air pollution harms the environment, resulting in acidification, biodiversity loss, ozone depletion and climate change. Changing our transport habits can go a long way to stemming urban air pollution. This year’s European Mobility Week slogan, “Clean air – it’s your move!”, reflects the power that citizens have to clean up air quality through their mobility choices. It is a reminder that we all have a part to play, and that even small changes, such as commuting by bicycle rather than taking the car, opting for public transport, or choosing to walk, can enhance our quality of life.
