European Mobility Week: Zero-emission mobility for all
93 towns and cities in Germany show how fairer mobility works (16-22 September)
Zero-emission mobility should be possible for all. However, the current German transportation system penalises far too many population groups who, for example, suffer from a lack of accessibility or live on busy roads. During European Mobility Week from September 16-22, 93 towns and cities in Germany will show how and 2680 municipalities worldwide will be demonstrating what can be done to ensure that local citizens can travel in an environmentally and climate-friendly and socially just manner. Dirk Messner, President of the German Environment Agency (UBA) said, "Only if everybody can be equally mobile in a sustainable manner will a local turnaround in transport be successful. I therefore very much welcome the fact that despite the coronavirus pandemic, local authorities are using European Mobility Week to approach the topic with many different campaigns and initiatives, thereby helping in some way to reduce the existing injustices in mobility".
