Find out why Karditsa in Greece received the 2019 EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award for smaller municipalities (less than 50 000 inhabitants).
Ever felt like you were walking on air? Kardista’s new ‘3D’ pedestrian crossings make it look like you are. Painting these crossings was just one intervention in a packed week of events that saw hundreds of people walking, climbing and dancing to the theme of safe walking and cycling.
Dozens of partners including schools, music schools, government departments, police, firemen, associations and businesses all got in on the action throughout this festival-like week of mobility celebrations.
If the atmosphere alone wasn’t enough, new incentives like financial benefits for companies that took on sustainable mobility measures and days of work for employees who commuted by bike or by foot showed people that safe walking and cycling can be appealing for reasons beyond health and wellbeing.
