European Mobility Week
European Mobility Week will be held in Catalonia from 16 to 22 September. It promotes more sustainable, safe and healthy mobility habits such as travelling on foot, by bicycle, on public transport or with an electric vehicle, as well as visualising possible changes in the use of public space, improving air quality and reducing pollution. With the slogan 'For Emission-Free Mobility', the Week of 2020 aims to become carbon neutral by 2050.
The main objectives of the Week are as follows:
- To stimulate citizen behaviour in relation to vehicle use that is compatible with sustainable urban development, in particular the protection of air quality, the prevention of road accidents, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the rational consumption of energy resources.
- To raise public awareness of the environmental impacts of transport and inform them about its various modes.
- To encourage the use of sustainable means of transport, in particular public transport, cycling, walking and electric vehicles.
- To promote a reunion of citizens with the city, its people and its cultural heritage, in a healthy and relaxed environment.
- To reflect on how the excessive use of motorised transport affects our health. On the one hand, air pollution and the congestion they generate have a negative impact on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. On the other hand, they lead to sedentary lifestyles and physical inactivity.
