Kassel, Rethymno, Tampere and Valongo Crowned at the Sustainable Urban Mobility Awards

EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK recently revealed the 2021 winners of the sustainable urban mobility awards at a hybrid ceremony in Brussels.

Kassel (Germany) walked away with the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK award for larger municipalities, while Valongo (Portugal) took home the title for smaller municipalities. The 10th Award for Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning was won by Tampere (Finland) and the EU Urban Road Safety Award went to Rethymno (Greece).

EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK is excited to unveil its very first Impact Report, which will replace the Participation Report from previous years.

The purpose of the Impact Report is to provide a deeper understanding of the significance of the campaign - and related events, communications, measures and more - for European sustainable mobility culture. Future editions will also seek to offer further insight into the evaluation of the campaign’s various elements at both local and national levels.
As EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK prepares to launch this year’s campaign, they sat down with Ayben Okkali Aktaş, the National Coordinator for Türkiye, to discuss the importance of sustainable mobility role models, integrated campaign planning, the European Year of Youth and challenges related to the rising popularity of e-scooters in Türkiye.

The 2022 EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK theme is ‘Better Connections’. This year’s theme highlights, and seeks to foster, synergies between people and places that are offering their expertise, creativity and dedication to raising awareness about sustainable mobility - and promoting behavioural change in favour of active mobility - while making connections between existing groups and new audiences.


 After careful deliberation, from a pool of 377 cities interested in joining the mission, the European Commission has selected 100 cities to showcase their systemic transformations toward climate neutrality by 2030. The Cities Mission will support and promote these cities’ innovative transitions and help them become hubs for experimentation as they work to implement integrated decarbonisation strategies for transport, energy, buildings and more.
