Catalonia celebrates Sustainable and Safe Mobility Week (21/09/2009)

Once again this year Catalonia celebrates Sustainable and Safe Mobility Week, starting next Tuesday the 22nd and continuing until Tuesday the 29th of September. During this special week nearly a hundred and twenty Catalan municipalities will put on numerous activities for the purpose of raising social awareness of the need for increased urban mobility to prevent the negative effects of the inappropriate use of cars in the city.

In 1999 an institutional commission made up of several Catalan public and private organisations was set up to promote the use of sustainable and environmentally friendly public transport among the different city and town councils and to coordinate joint activities. The origin of Sustainable Mobility Week goes back to 1999 when the first day without cars was held, which on that occasion was called “el día de la autoreflexión” (the day of self-reflection).

Because of its great popular success and high levels of participation, the programme of activities was extended to an entire week. Sustainable Mobility Week was first held in Catalonia in 2001 and other European countries supporting the day without cars have also celebrated a European Sustainable Mobility Week since 2002. So today Catalonia welcomes Mobility Week along with more than 30 countries and 1,300 cities across Europe.
