European Mobility Week 2023

Every year, during the third week of September, Europe becomes the focus of a campaign that promotes a significant change in the way we travel.

European Mobility Week, held from September 16 to 22, is a call to action to raise awareness among politicians and citizens about the benefits of sustainable transportation for the environment and public health. In 2023, this celebration takes on even greater importance given the growing global awareness of the need to address climate change and reduce air pollution.

Under the slogan “Mix and Move!” the initiative aims to adopt more sustainable means of transport and create cities that are more environmentally friendly and livable for their inhabitants. It seeks to highlight the impact of our transportation choices on the health of our planet, inspiring communities to commit to more sustainable mobility practices.

Cities across Europe are committed to offering activities and events to engage citizens. These include:

  • Car-Free Days: On September 22, Car-Free Day will be celebrated by temporarily closing certain urban areas to promote solutions that mitigate traffic and the emissions it generates.
  • Awareness Campaigns: Campaigns will be organized to raise awareness about the importance of reducing carbon emissions and air pollution.
  • Electrification of Transport: Various companies will showcase products and services developed to promote new electric transportation lifestyles.
  • Cycling Routes and Thematic Walks: Cycling and hiking will be promoted with themed routes that highlight the beauty and history of cities.

European Mobility Week aims not only to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions but also to promote a range of social and environmental benefits, including:

  • Improved Air Quality: The use of cleaner transportation contributes to reducing air pollution and thus to better public health.
  • Promotion of Physical Activity: Walking and cycling are healthy ways to get around, leading to a more active and healthier population.
  • Noise Reduction: Less traffic means less noise in cities, improving the quality of life for residents.
  • Reduction of Congestion: Promoting these initiatives helps to decrease traffic, saving time and reducing stress.

European Mobility Week 2023 is a reminder that each of us has an important role to play in building a more sustainable future. By adopting sustainable mobility practices, we not only improve our cities but also contribute to the global fight against climate change. So, this September, join in and make sustainable mobility a healthy lifestyle!
