The European Mobility Week - EMW (16. - 22. 9.), which has been held annually since 2002, is aimed at promoting safe and ecological means of transportation in cities and municipalities. This year too, Healthy Cities of the Czech Republic (www.ZdravaMesta.cz/etm), which were one of its first implementers in the Czech Republic, joined the campaign.
The campaign is an ideal opportunity to present alternatives of sustainable mobility to citizens, explain challenges faced by cities and municipalities in order to bring about changes in citizens´ behaviour, and to make progress towards creating a more sustainable transport strategy for Europe.
The European Mobility Week seeks to influence mobility and urban transport as well as improve the health and quality of life of citizens. It enables them to learn about the true role of urban streets, and to explore concrete solutions to urban issues such as air pollution. Local authorities are encouraged to use the European Mobility Week for testing new measures in the field of transport to gain feedback from residents. Moreover, it is an excellent opportunity for local entrepreneurs to discuss various aspects of mobility and air quality, and the possibility of testing new technologies, and to seek innovative solutions in order to reduce the use of cars, and thereby cut emissions.
