MOBILITYACTION Award Winner 2022

Metropolia GZM (Poland) is the 2022 MOBILITYACTION Award winner!

The MOBILITYACTION  jury selected Metropolia GZM for its comprehensive approach to transforming a local university car park into a green, pedestrian-friendly space. Engaging professionals from the public transport, cycling, social development, sustainable mobility and urban policy sectors, the Polish metropolis co-created a car-park transformation that would not only benefit the university, but would also decrease related traffic and encourage locals to use the space. Urban furniture and greenery were installed, as well as traffic calming measures. The first reports show more people from on- and off-campus frequenting the area. Urban designers are currently conducting interviews to better understand how to remove all ground-level parking spots and implement accessible public transport solutions across the campus.

The other finalists were Ar2gether (Rome, Italy) and UCB Pharma (Braine L'Alleud, Belgium).

The MOBILITYACTION award was launched by the European Commission in 2022 to reward excellence in mobility management. The award seeks to showcase MOBILITYACTIONs, which are sustainable mobility solutions submitted by civil society organisations, businesses, educational institutions, citizen initiatives and municipalities throughout the year.
