Mobility and transport, a map of EU stakeholders (a selection)

At European level

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.
