Sharing gets you further

This year's EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK theme focuses on a concept that we first encountered as toddlers - sharing. By using shared forms of transport we can reduce our expenses and lower our carbon footprint. Smart technology, such as apps and online platforms are already helping to make mobility more efficient, saving us money and helping the environment. EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2017 will be celebrated under the theme of "Clean, shared and intelligent mobility", using the call-to-action "Sharing gets you further."

Award winning Malmö uses EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK to reach city's mobility goals

An interview with Olof Rabe, Mobility Projects Manager, City of Malmö

What activities did Malmö undertake to help it win the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award?

There are several activities that I think contributed to our success, but if I have to highlight some of them I would say that the temporary reformation of a street, the opportunity for citizens and visitors to discuss mobility issues with officials, and our whole-day conference were three activities that turned out well.
