Each European Mobility Week focuses on a particular 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.
Moving in the right direction
Who would not want to live in a city where the air is clean and where there is little noise. A place free of congestion, where getting around town is easy and citizens enjoy a high quality of life. A city that you are proud of because it is protecting the climate and that is known across Europe for being innovative and forward looking. With some strategic thinking it is possible to make this vision a reality.
Sustainable urban mobility can be achieved through an integrated planning approach that takes into account all modes of transport in cities and their surrounding areas. Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) define a set of interrelated measures that bring you step-by-step closer to meeting the mobility needs of citizens and business, while enhancing the quality of life in your city. SUMPs aspire to balance environmental quality, economic development and social equity.
The European Commission (EC) has adopted an Action Plan on Urban Mobility to accelerate their take-up in Europe. It helps local authorities to develop SUMPs by providing guidance material, promoting best practice exchange, identifying benchmarks, and supporting educational activities for urban mobility professionals. Take advantage of this support to get your city moving in the right direction today.
Join cities across Europe and the world, demonstrate your commitment to implementing sustainable mobility initiatives and register for European Mobility Week.
