Local authorities that complete all three are referred to as 'Golden participants'.

Golden participants are eligible to apply for the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Awards, which recognise local authorities that make outstanding efforts to promote sustainable urban mobility during the main week of the campaign. The application is open from 29 September to 31 October 2021.

Organise activities that celebrate sustainable urban transport. The celebrations can take any form - from guided walks or bicycle rides to street games to public lectures. As long as the activities promote public transport, cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable mobility, they're valid.

Permanent Measures

(Find more details below)

 Implement or promote permanent infrastructure that helps people make sustainable transport choices. These ‘permanent measures’ don’t need to be expensive: the aim is to show the commitment of the town or city to sustainable urban mobility.

"Car-Free Day": 18,032

2021: 1,122

Hold a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and instead opening them to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city’s link to World Car-Free Day.
