The EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award is presented to the local authority that is judged to have done the most to raise awareness of sustainable mobility during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK (16-22 September). To apply, local authorities must have implemented the three criteria and signed the Charter.
Winners of the award, chosen by an independent panel of transport experts, receive a three-minute video in both English and their native language highlighting their achievements. In addition, the winning city and finalists are promoted via the campaign's channels.
Malmö's efforts to promote cycling as a sustainable means of transport led to the Swedish city taking home the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award 2016. Malmö beat stiff competition from fellow finalists Lisbon (Portugal) and Skopje (former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). Read more in the official press release.
