8 members of Energy Cities highlighted by the European Commission!

The European Commission has published a brochure dedicated to the past decade of the European Mobility Week initiative, launched in 2002. This brochure focuses on cities which featured in the Mobility Week awards in the past ten years. 8 member-cities of Energy Cities are presented as shining examples in this document.

Ten years ago, the European Commission invited municipalities across the EU to take action against the threat of climate change and to improve the quality of life for citizens by making cities more pleasant places to live in. From a small event involving some 320 cities in 2002, European Mobility Week has grown into a phenomenon which included a record 2,221 cities in 2011. Much has changed over the past decade. We are more aware of how personal mobility choices affect our well- being and that of our neighbours.

There is a growing awareness of the need for alternative forms of transport, to cut greenhouse gas emissions and produce less of the pollutants that contribute to respiratory diseases and damage our environment. The health benefits of cleaner transport are numerous, from improved fitness, as people adopt walking or cycling as part of their daily routine, to higher economic efficiency and economic growth.

This brochure highlights the broad range of original ideas and activities that have formed part of the mobility week brand – many of them are the fruit of grass-roots initiatives by local communities – and the permanent impact they have had both on the urban environment and on people’s behaviour. It is a fitting tribute to inspiration coupled with hard work and determination.

Energy Cities has been involved in the European Mobility Week since 2002.
8 cities presented as shining examples in this brochure take actively part in Energy Cities: Almada (PT), Budapest (HU), Frankfurt-am-Main (DE), Geneva (CH), Ivanić-Grad (HR), Nantes (FR), Riga (LV), Zagreb (HR).
