Today the European Commission launches the 16th EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK, a flagship campaign for Mobility and Transport, taking place from 16 to 22 September 2017. More than 2000 towns from Europe and beyond have organised events to encourage residents to try out alternatives to traditional means of transport, generally culminating in a Car-Free Day. This is in line with the theme of this year campaign: ‘Clean, shared and intelligent mobility’ and its call-to-action ‘Sharing gets you further’. At the same time, the Commission is launching a call for applications for this year’s award for sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP Award). This year’s award focuses on shared mobility to promote intelligent and clean transport, the same theme as EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK.

Delivering goods in cities is a big challenge: new motive powers, increasing amount of shipments (based on e-commerce) and the competitiveness of city centres are good reasons for cities to think about new solutions for delivering goods. Furthermore, there are existing EU-guidelines for a better, sustainable and environmental friendly transport of goods within cities. Drawing on national and international examples, this workshop will present new solutions and provide an opportunity for city authorities and companies to network. The workshop is targeted at representatives of cities or municipalities and experts in the logistic branch in Austria and neighbouring countries.
