This year's European Mobility Week is taking place from 16 to 22 September under the theme "Safe and Healthy with Sustainable Mobility".
European Mobility Week is the European Commission’s flagship awareness-raising campaign on sustainable urban mobility. The main event takes place from 16 to 22 September each year, culminating in the popular Car-Free Day.
This year's chosen theme pays tribute to the hardships felt by Europe (and the world) during the COVID-19 pandemic. It also reflects on the opportunities for change resulting from this unprecedented health crisis in Europe.
21 municipalities in Luxembourg have registered to date, six of which meet the criteria to participate in the award ceremony at European level. The criteria include offering a week of activities and information for residents, the inauguration of one or more permanent measures and the closure of one or more main roads in the municipality, preferably on 22 September 2021. The eligible municipalities are Bissen, Colmar-Berg, Esch-sur-Alzette, Feulen, Mamer and Mertzig.
Nine municipalities are organising a car-free day in 2021. In addition, this year's programme includes mobility days, cycling tours, presentations of electric cars and bicycles, the distribution of croissants and coffee to public transport users and presentations of mobility concepts.
The full Luxembourg programme is available on the dedicated European Mobility Week website: www.mobiliteitswoch.lu.
