Each EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK focuses on a particular topic related to sustainable mobility, the so-called focal theme. Local authorities are required to organise activities for their citizens based on this theme. They are also encouraged to launch and promote permanent measures that support the theme.
This year's EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK theme focuses on a concept that we first encountered as toddlers - sharing.
By using shared forms of transport we can reduce our expenses and lower our carbon footprint. Best of all, we can meet new people and make our journey more sociable!
Smart technology, such as apps and online platforms are already helping to make mobility more efficient, saving us money and helping the environment. New applications have made it easier than ever before to manage our mobility together.
Studies show that embracing shared mobility can have a positive impact on our towns and cities: each shared car, for example, takes approximately 15 private cars off the road.
Sharing also enables us to mix transport types more easily. Driving, cycling, public transport - it's all possible when we share.
EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2017 will be celebrated under the theme of "Clean, shared and intelligent mobility", using the call-to-action "Sharing gets you further."
