The European Mobility Week Stands for a Cleaner Air


Over 2 000 European towns and cities participated in the 12th edition of European Mobility Week, an annual campaign celebrated each 16-22 September and aimed at promoting sustainable urban travel.
‘Clean air – It’s your move!’ was this year’s slogan, drawing authorities’ and citizens’ attention to the link between air quality and mobility behavior, and prompting them to opt for greener choices. Participating towns and cities committed themselves to raise awareness of air pollution and to taking measures to reduce it.
The 2013 edition coincided with the European Year of Air, an area EU policy makers are currently reviewing through the Thematic Strategy on Air Quality. Further information is available on the campaign website.
