Participation 2014

Activities within the week Activities within the week

Kraków organises activities during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2014, taking into account the annual theme.

Kraków od lat prowadzi działania na rzecz uspokojenia ruchu samochodowego w Śródmieściu, dlatego też oddawanych jest pieszym coraz więcej przestrzeni zajmowanych kiedyś przez auta. Można tu przedstawić choćby takie przykłady jak przekształcenie w miejską przestrzeń - niedostępną dla ruchu - Małego Rynku i placu Szczepańskiego, czy ulicy Grodzkiej i fragmentu ul. Krupniczej. Ważnym elementem kampanii jest promocja zrównoważonego transportu oraz zwiększenie świadomości społeczeństwa w zakresie ograniczenia korzystania z samochodów na rzecz przyjaznych dla środowiska form transportu.
