2,000 cities participate in EMW 2014


The European coordination body of European Mobility Week (EMW) has published its annual report on the short term impact of the 2014 campaign.

Based on the online registration data, the EMW Participation Report provides a quantitative overview and analysis of participation per country. This year’s edition of EMW, on the theme ‘Our streets, our choice’, was very successful. More than 2,000 cities and municipalities in 44 countries officially joined the campaign. Austria, Spain, Portugal, Hungary and Italy registered the highest number of participants, while the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Greece, Slovakia and Slovenia also set records in terms of their participation rates. 

During the campaign week itself, a record 8,543 permanent measures were introduced and promoted. These focused mainly on mobility management, improved accessibility and new infrastructure for cycling and walking.
