EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK celebrates its 20th year! The European Commission’s flagship awareness-raising campaign on sustainable urban mobility promotes behavioural change in favour of active mobility, public transport, and other clean, intelligent transport solutions.

In 2021, the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK annual theme is 'Safe and Healthy with Sustainable Mobility', in line with the wishes of local campaigners to contribute to mental and physical health and overall well-being of residents.

The main event takes place from 16-22 September each year, culminating in the popular Car-Free Day. Local authorities are encouraged to use the main week to try out innovative planning measures, promote new infrastructure and technologies, measure air quality, and get feedback from the public.

With more towns and cities joining every year, and with its huge media appeal, the campaign is widely recognised as a driving force towards sustainable urban mobility in Europe and beyond.

Registering an event or initiative

Towns and cities worldwide are warmly invited to participate in EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK. This year again, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, towns and cities have maximum flexibility when participating.

Local authorities can register their events and permanent infrastructure initiatives - organising activities during the week of 16-22 September, implementing or promoting new transport infrastructure, and holding a Car-Free Day.

Registering a Mobility Action

If you’re not a city, but you're doing something to promote the idea of sustainable urban mobility, we want to hear about it! By registering your MOBILITYACTION on the campaign website, you can become part of the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK campaign and your steps to promote sustainable urban mobility will be displayed on the list of MOBILITYACTIONS. Whether you’ve decided to cycle to work with your neighbours, or you’re an employer taking action to encourage your employees to use public transport, we’re eager to help you share your success story. You're eligible as long as the action you’re doing promotes a behavioural shift towards a more sustainable urban mobility culture and is of a promotional rather than a technical nature (i.e. technical innovations as such are not eligible).
