Its main goal is to show to the city residents that the automobile is far from the only convenient means of transportation in the city, while there are much more eco-friendly alternatives. The campaign gives people the chance to explore the role of city streets, to experiment with practical solutions to tackle urban challenges, such as air pollution and be more attentive to the public health and quality of life.
The campaign will traditionally culminate on September 22, when the entire world celebrates the Car Free Day. 18 belarusian cities will support this initiative among their residents. The theme of EMW 2020 puts a spotlight on the importance of accessibility to zero-emission transport and promotes an inclusive framework involving everyone. The motto of the year 2020 is “Choose your move”.
Every year, as part of the European Mobility Week and the World Car-Free Day, motorists are encouraged to stop using vehicles for a day or even a week in favor of public transport, bicycles and walking.
