EU Cancer Plan to promote investment in active mobility infrastructure

17 February 2021

Earlier this month, the European Commission released its Europe's Beating Cancer Plan, setting out a new EU approach to cancer prevention, treatment and care.

The plan will be supported by actions spanning across policy areas from employment, education, social policy and equality, to transport, cohesion policy, and taxation.

The plan aims to tackle the entire disease pathway and is structured around four key action areas where the EU can add the most value: prevention; early detection; diagnosis and treatment; and quality of life of cancer patients and survivors.
Urban mobility plays an important role in addressing the key action area of “prevention”.

Under the plan, the European Commission will seek to promote investment in active mobility infrastructures, as well as initiatives such as EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK – the European Commission’s flagship awareness-raising campaign on sustainable urban mobility, which this year focuses on health issues under the theme Safe and Healthy with Sustainable Urban Mobility.

The plan also calls for the revision of the Urban Mobility Package in 2021, to support sustainable and healthy transport and mobility.
