    Comments Off on EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK publishes 2023 impact report

    The report contains facts and figures, as well as the long-term impact of campaign activities on sustainable mobility perception, attitudes and behaviour.


    EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK has been held annually in September for more than two decades. The event is the European Commission’s flagship awareness-raising campaign on sustainable urban mobility. The concept calls for and supports thousands of towns and cities across Europe and beyond, to raise awareness on sustainable mobility and encourage behavioural change in favour of walking, cycling and public transport.

    Readers of the impact report will find reflection on the efforts and outcomes of the 2023 campaign, including those organised by municipalities during the week itself, plus supporting MOBILITYACTIONs delivered throughout the year by predominantly non-municipal stakeholders. The report is structured into five chapters, consistent with European Commission guidance on campaign evaluation: Inputs, Activities, Outputs, Results, and Impacts.

    The report reveals that an admirable 2,782 events took place during the 2023 campaign, with 1,182 car-free days, and 3,351 towns and cities taking part across 45 countries. There is much more detail to be found within, as well as inspiration for those looking to get involved in 2024. You can view an interactive map of activities in your city or country here.
