Each European Mobility Week focuses on a particular topic related to sustainable mobility, the so-called focal theme. This year, the motto is "Moving in the right direction"
Who would not want to live in a city where the air is clean and where there is little noise. A place free of congestion, where getting around town is easy and citizens enjoy a high quality of life. A city that you are proud of because it is protecting the climate and that is known across Europe for being innovative and forward looking. With some strategic thinking it is possible to make this vision a reality.
Sustainable urban mobility can be achieved through an integrated planning approach that takes into account all modes of transport in cities and their surrounding areas. Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) define a set of interrelated measures that bring you step-by-step closer to meeting the mobility needs of citizens and business, while enhancing the quality of life in your city. SUMPs aspire to balance environmental quality, economic development and social equity.
This year's European Mobility Week takes place from 16-22 September 2012.
