Find out why Paide in Estonia were finalists for the 2019 EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award for smaller municipalities (less than 50 000 inhabitants).
Prefer a park to a parking space? This is one way in which Paide is making more space for pedestrians, on top of widened walkways, longer cycle paths and places to lock your bike, and better access for disabled people.
During EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK even the mayor was coming to work on foot. And not just to work – the mayor also led one of the many walking activities that let people find the right pace to rediscover their city.
The week’s activities were a community effort that saw residents talk together and walk together to mobilise for a vision of sustainable mobility for their city and learn about the benefits that active transport has for their health. In Paide, the future is in your hands, and mobility is in your feet!
