The European Mobility Week campaign - EMW (16 – 22 September), which has been held annually since 2002, is aimed at promoting safe, clean and ecological modes of urban transport. This year too, the campaign will be joined by Healthy Cities (www.zdravamesta.cz/etm), which was one of its first implementers in the Czech Republic.
The campaign provides the perfect opportunity to present sustainable mobility alternatives to local residents and to explain challenges that cities and towns are facing 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 to improve the health and quality of life of local residents. It offers citizens the opportunity to learn about the true role of urban streets, and to explore specific 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, and gaining feedback from residents. Moreover, it is an excellent opportunity for local entrepreneurs to get together to discuss various aspects of mobility and air quality, and to seek innovative solutions to reduce the use of cars, and thereby cut emissions, and to look at the possibilities of testing new technologies.
