      Budapest to organise anti-pollution Mobility Week




      Friday, 12 September 2008 -

      ImageBudapest will join European Mobility Week, a series of events on
      sustainable transport, public health and urban issues -- held for the
      seventh year from September 16-22.

      The campaign with the slogan "clean air for all" will feature
      transport-related programmes and public forums on each day.

      On the opening day on Tuesday, politicians and public figures will race
      to time compare a car, bicycle and public transport as means of reaching
      their destination.

      Later in the week, residents will have the chance to ride in vehicles
      powered by alternative fuels, taste healthy foods, enjoy theatre
      performances and other cultural events and take walks in a cleaner city on
      car-free days on Sunday and Monday.


      The European Mobility Week

      Every year, since 2002, the European Mobility Week is organised from 16 to
      22 September and is dedicated to sustainable mobility. The European Mobility
      Week gives the opportunity to initiate a wide range of activities and
      represents a platform for local authorities as well as organisations and
      associations to:

      * promote their existing policies, initiatives and best practices
      related to
      * sustainable urban mobility;
      * contribute to raising citizens' awareness on the damages that
      current
      * urban mobility trends generate on the environment and the quality
      of life;
      * establish performing partnerships with local stakeholders;
      * be part of a Europe wide campaign, sharing a common goal and a
      * common identity with other towns and cities;
      * emphasize the local commitment towards sustainable urban transport
      policies; and
      * launch new longer term policies and permanent measures.
