About European Mobility Week 2018

Since 2002, EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK has sought to improve public health and quality of life through promoting clean mobility and sustainable urban transport. The campaign gives people the chance to explore the role of city streets and to experiment with practical solutions to tackle urban challenges, such as air pollution. For full background and information —

The EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK campaign provides the perfect opportunity to present sustainable mobility alternatives to local residents and to explain the challenges that cities and towns are facing. By taking part, towns and cities can showcase the benefits of cleaner transport choices and make progress towards better mobility in Europe.

Local authorities are strongly encouraged to use the week to test new transport measures and get feedback from the public. It is also an excellent opportunity for local stakeholders to get together and discuss the different aspects of mobility and air quality, find innovative solutions to reduce car-use and transport emissions, and test new technologies and planning measures.

2018 IS THE 24th ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD CAR FREE DAYS

” Every day is a great day to take a few cars off the road, and think about it.” This was the theme of the first announcement by Eric Britton of a World Car Free Days international collaborative project that took place in Toledo Spain in October 1994 and was within months on-street reality in the first three cities launching Car Free Days of their own. World Streets continues to participate actively in planning, celebrating and analyzing the results of these Days in cities around the world.
