Strovolos Municipality organises activities during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2020, taking into account the annual theme.

18 September
The Municipality of Strovolos recently started an initiative for a Sustainable Mobility District, as we recognise that the transport sector offers a great opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change. Aligned with the municipality’s participation in the Covenant of Mayor and its commitment to implement a local strategy for Energy and Climate, this initiative aims to co-design with the inhabitants the district’s streets with a focus on sustainable mobility and the quality of life of the inhabitants. This Sustainable Mobility District will promote walking and cycling, will improve the green spaces and encourage human interaction. Ultimately, the re-design of the street will discourage the use of cars, promote the co-existence of the different street users and increase the accessibility to all. In April 2020, the municipality published an online questionnaire calling for citizens in Strovolos to apply for their street to be converted into a Sustainable Mobility District. The responses were evaluated with the technical support of the Cyprus University of Technology and the Cyprus Energy Agency. On the 18th of September 2020 we organise the first presentation and workshop to engage the residents of the selected area.
