Registration for 2017 is closed. You can still register a MOBILITYACTION at any time during the year. See you again in 2018!

 Any town or city, from both Europe and further beyond, is invited to participate in EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK. To take part, each participating town or city must commit to one or more of the three criteria below.  Only the official local authority of the town or city may register for EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK.

At minimum, a city or town must organise an event or activity relating to sustainable urban mobility (those that do not will have their online registration rejected). Local authorities that commit to carrying out all three criteria - holding a week of activities, implementing permanent measures and holding a Car-Free Day - will be designated as 'Golden Participants' and become eligible to apply for the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award.

Week of activities: 17,717
2017: 1,712

Organise activities that celebrate sustainable urban transport. The celebrations can take any form - from information booths to street games to public lectures. As long as the activities promote public transport, cycling and walking they're valid.


Permanent Measures

(Find more details below)

Permanent measures contribute to people swapping the private car for environmentally sound means of transport. These measures don’t need to be expensive: the aim is to show the commitment of the town or city to sustainable urban mobility.


"Car-Free Day": 13,448
2017: 1,363

Cities carry out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic and instead opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.


More information on the three criteria above, including suggestions on how to implement them, can be found in the 2017 Handbook.
