As the National Co-ordinator of European Mobility Week for the UK, Act TravelWise encourages local authorities, county councils, transport authorities and all others to take part this year. Local authorities will need to register their participation at http://www.mobilityweek.eu/join-us/registration/
European Mobility Week is an annual campaign on sustainable urban travel, organised with the support of the Directorates-General for the Environment and Transport of the European Commission. The aim of the campaign, which runs from 16 to 22 September every year, is to encourage European local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite their citizens to try out alternatives to car use.
The Week culminates in the ‘In Town Without My Car!’ event, which has been running since 2000, and sees participating towns and cities set aside one or several areas solely for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport for the entire day.
