European Mobility Week is a really simple, and hopefully effective, idea. It offers celebrations of green transport all over Europe where residents can reclaim roads. Here are just two examples;
Residents of the town of Almada in Portugal can swap recyclable materials for free rides on public transportation.
In Budapest, Hungary, they closed a road to all but public transit vehicles and hybrid cars. Best of all the road was even turned into a “living street” and paved with green grass that hosts sports and theater events for three days. If only it could be like this all year round, most certainly in the summer.
Here is our pick of some of the other events from all over Europe.
