Sustainable mobility for citizens in Europe

Objectives of the project

Efficient and effective urban mobility can significantly contribute to achieving sustainable economic growth and employment opportunities in our cities. It is of huge importance to achieving the EU 2020 objectives as 70% of the EU population live in cities and account for over 80% of the EU’s GDP. Moreover, in many urban areas, the increasing demand for urban mobility has created a non-sustainable environment with severe congestion, poor air quality and high levels of CO2 emissions.

The purpose of the project is to create a permanent thematic working group focused on sustainable mobility in the framework of Energy Cities. The project will tackle the development and update of the local Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans by the local authorities as well as implementation of specific actions, such as: promotion of cycling, car sharing, sustainable mobility in schools (walking buses, awareness campaigns), family contests, public events (e.g. energy days/fairs, European mobility week) allowing citizens to learn about local, national and European experiences in terms of products and services related to sustainable mobility.

Implementation

The consortium is coordinated by Energy Cities and 6 member cities of Energy Cities are involved as project partners: Bistrița (Romania), Čačak (Serbia), Milton-Keynes (United Kingdom), Modena (Italy), Växjö (Sweden) and Zadar (Croatia).

4 webinars, 4 workshops and 4 site visits will be organised for representatives of local authorities that are partners in the project. Each of the 6 partner local authorities will organise one public fair to involve citizens and local stakeholders at large, thus allowing them to be informed, involved and have their say in the local and European policy making process.

The Energy Cities thematic working group focusing on sustainable mobility will build on this first phase of collaboration and exchange.
