Participation 2020

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
16 September
This year, as Beşiktaş Municipality, we will highlight the European Mobility Week's 2020 theme "Zero Emissions for All" with awareness and publicity campaigns, and announcements that will last all week.

At many points in Beşiktaş, stationary exercise bikes with pedal power generator system capable of charging a cell phone has been installed by Beşiktaş Municipality within the scope of European Mobility Week. Thus, we have provided our citizens a service where they can meet their needs to recharge smartphones, which are indispensable for daily life, with the stationary exercise bikes, with zero emission. Stationary exercise bikes, which are commonly located in parks, allow users to charge their mobile phones with renewable energy and save energy while working out.
