BC3 – Basque Centre for Climate Change participates at the 2020 European Mobility Week. Since 2002, EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK has sought to improve public health and quality of life through promoting clean mobility and sustainable urban transport. The campaign 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. BC3 as an interdisciplinary research centre on the causes and consequences of climate change takes the opportunity to show the research that we are doing to understand the impact of mobility in the climate emergency.
This year’s EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK theme is ‘Zero-emission mobility for all’.
The theme reflects the ambitious targets of a carbon-neutral continent by 2050, as laid out by Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, when presenting the European Green Deal.
It also aims to highlight the importance of accessibility to zero-emission transport and promote an inclusive framework involving everyone.
Despite the different climatic, geographical and socio-economic conditions across Europe’s urban areas, measures can be taken to promote a carbon-neutral and inclusive urban environment. Therefore, EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK 2020 encourages people and local authorities to take steps to achieve the long-term goal of a carbon-neutral continent.
