European Mobility Week: national competition to start in autumn
Awards go to local community action and innovative examples of sustainable mobility
Car-free days, free public transport, e-cargo bike trials – Since its launch in 2002, more and more municipalities as well as companies, associations and educational institutions have been taking part in European Mobility Week (EMW). In 2020, 97 municipalities in Germany alone took part in EMW, and a total of 2,944 across Europe. Once again in 2021, various actions and programmes will show what sustainable mobility in cities and municipalities can look like in practice from 16 to 22 September. The German Environment Agency (UBA) is launching the first nationwide competition this year to honour this commitment. All German municipalities and organisations that officially participate in the EMW in 2021 are eligible to enter.
