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.

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.
