LOW-CARB in the 2019 EU Mobility Week 


This week marks the 18th annual European Mobility Week! 

“Since 2002, EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK has sought to improve public health and quality of life through promoting clean mobility and sustainable urban transport. The campaign gives people the chance to explore the role of city streets and to experiment with practical solutions to tackle urban challenges, such as air pollution.” 

This year the European Mobility Week (EMW) will be held during the 16th – 22nd of September. LOW-CARB's partners have planned several exciting actions in their cities all encouraging lifestyles of low carbon mobility.
