Our streets, our choice

The Mobility Week, sponsored by the European Commission, aims to raise awareness of the impact of transport on air quality and encourage people to use alternative means to the private car.

The slogan of the week dedicated to the sustainable mobility of this year (16 to 22 September 2014) is Our streets, our choice.

This is to emphasize that the traffic, air quality, the use of urban spaces depend on the mobility choices we make every day.

In few words, if we want the most livable cities we need to start by choosing the right mobility!
