Registration for EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK 2019 now open

Towns and cities across Europe and further afield can now register their participation in EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2019.

The annual campaign, which takes place from 16-22 September each year, is organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport and seeks to improve quality of life through promoting clean mobility and sustainable urban transport.

This year’s campaign puts the spotlight on safe walking and cycling and the benefits it can have for our health, environment, and bank balance. The 2019 theme is represented by the slogan Walk with us!

Towns and cities can register their participation online, selecting which of the three options – holding a week of activities focused on sustainable mobility, implementing one or more permanent transport measures, or holding a ‘Car-Free-Day’ – they will be carrying out to celebrate the week.

Last year’s EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK saw 2,792 towns and cities from 54 countries take part in the campaign.

Businesses, NGOs, schools and other actors, including cities, who want to get involved in the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK campaign are also invited to register their MOBILITYACTION online.

A MOBILITYACTION is any action that promotes the idea of sustainable urban mobility. It can be limited to a specific day or last for several weeks/months and can take place at any moment of the year.
