European Mobility Week Award Ceremony with the participation of Janez Potočnik and Siim Kallas
On 6 March 2013, the European Commission has announced the winners of the 2012 European Mobility Week Award and of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans Award. The cities were presented with their awards by Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, and Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transports, at a joint award ceremony in Brussels.
The European Mobility Week (EMW) 2012 award winner Zagreb, Croatia is a rising star in the field of sustainable urban mobility. The city won the award for its well-organised campaign to promote the week, a strong link with the 2012 theme ’Moving in the right direction’ and 62 separate activities involving more than 150 000 citizens. Aberdeen took the top honour in the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans Award ahead of two other finalists: Ljutomer, Slovenia and Toulouse, France. PHOTO SHOTLIST
