Activities within the week Activities within the week

Ljubljana (City of Ljubljana) organises activities during EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2015, taking into account the annual theme.

Despite the fact that Ljubljana won the European Mobility Week award for its successful implementation of activities and measures in 2013 and have thus become the only city with two such decorations (Ljubljana received the award also in 2003), its city administration, public companies and associations, as well as a number of other organisations, still endeavour to raise the quality of life in the city. This time they Will put in extra effort and upgrade their activities by introducing more sustainable measures as in previous European Mobility Weeks, while at the same time they also plan to prepare many more new interesting events to complement the ‘traditional’ ones.
Throughout the European Mobility Week, which traditionally takes place between 16 and 22 September, there will be plenty of activities promoting walking, cycling and public transport as well as the usage of other more environment-friendly vehicles. This year the focus is laid on the "right mix" of different transport modes and related activities. Ljubljana will incorporate this message in its vast variety of daily social, cultural an sports events and many activities that will take place each day throughout the entire week.
Specific programme will be available soon.

Car-free day Car-free day

Ljubljana (City of Ljubljana) carries out a Car-Free Day 2015 and closes off one or more streets to traffic, and opens it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
In the spirit of reviving the streets and public space, during EMW 2014 a street festival ‘Our Streets, Our Choice’ was organised on the Car Free Day, in two areas with future plans for restricted access for motorised vehicles. That was the first time that the employees of the City Of Ljubljana administration, public institutes and companies as well as members of over 30 other organisation actively took part in the campaign in such high number.
The event was a success and therefore it was decided to repeat it this year, but with focus on promoting multimodal way of moving around and to the city. Two streets at the outer line of the core city centre, Eipprova and Kolodvorska Street, will this year be closed for motorised traffic or refurbished to offer more space for pedestrians and cyclists.
