BRUSSELS – That’s the big message as EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2019 gets underway. In this annual initiative supported by the European Commission citizens are urged to consider cleaner, sustainable urban transport options.
Karmenu Vella, EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, said: “When it comes to clean transport, walking is the most environmentally friendly way to move around our towns and cities. Local governments can do a lot to encourage walking in urban areas, pedestrianising streets, creating low-emission zones, and allocating more space to walkers. It’s great for your health, but walking also means doing your bit for your city’s air quality, one step at a time.”
EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK will roundoff with Car-Free Day when streets will be filled with people rather than vehicles. Go on, #WalkWithUs
