European Mobility Week

European Mobility Week 2018

The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has just taken over the role of national co-ordinator for European Mobility Week (EMW) from the former Department of the Environment, Community & Local Government as it is felt that the themes more closely align with our Smarter Travel policy. European Mobility Week which will take place from 16 - 22 September, 2018.

EMW is a European wide initiative which invites local authorities and municipalities to arrange activities and events which promote and contribute to a shift towards sustainable urban transport. http://www.mobilityweek.eu/

This year's EMW theme is 'multimodality' with the corresponding slogan 'Mix and Move'.  The theme encourages us to explore the many different options available for getting from A to B, and to think about the mode that best suits our particular journey.

Local Authorities are encouraged to actively participate in EMW. LA's can register their city/ town online (see link above) at the appropriate level of participation and avail of the website to promote any planned activities. The website also has a wide range of resources that can be downloaded, including user manuals and poster artwork.
