The European Commission marked the importance of clean, shared and intelligent mobility a “No Car Day” event on 23 September. The “No Car Day” event took place in Walled City Nicosia from 10:30 – 13:00. Activities included bicycle tours, concerts, and mobility information stands. After the opening speeches by Mr.George Markopouliotis, Mr.Mehmet Harmancı and Mr.Fikri Toros, the participants experienced the clean mobility by attending the bicycle tours organised in every half hour.
Since 2002 European Mobility Week has sought to influence mobility and urban transport issues, as well as improve public health and quality of life. The campaign also 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. The European Mobility Week campaign provides the perfect opportunity to present sustainable mobility alternatives to local residents; and to explain the challenges that cities and towns are facing in order to induce behavioural change and make progress towards creating a more sustainable transport strategy for Europe.
