11:30 - Official opening of European Mobility Week

This year’s European Mobility Week, involving activities in towns and cities all across Europe between 16 and 22 September, focuses on safe cycling and safe walking, with the motto “Walk with us!”.

The EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK 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.
