European Mobility Week is the most widespread campaign on sustainable mobility in the world. It takes place every year from 16 to 22 September. The aim of the campaign is to encourage European local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable transport measures and to invite people to try out alternatives to car use. The aim of these thematic guidelines is to provide local European Mobility Week coordinators with background information on this theme and inspiration for suitable campaign activities. European Mobility Week encourages local authorities to reallocate and redesign streets and public spaces in favour of people. These guidelines provide concrete ideas on how to implement this and will also help local European Mobility Week coordinators to develop activities that match the criteria of the prestigious European Mobility Week Award.
