On 3 July 2012, the European Commission launched a campaign on Sustainable Urban Mobility. This campaign is a three-year initiative aiming to promote the advantages of combining different modes of transportation in 31 countries.
“We want to encourage people to vary the way they move around the city – so our slogan invites people to “Do the Right Mix”. It is vital to promote diversity in our daily mobility choices,” said Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas.
500,000 euro will be awarded to campaign participants to support actions demonstrating significant networking and multiplication effects at the local, regional and/or national or EU level. Individuals, non-commercial entities (schools, NGOs, public administrations, etc.) and commercial entities may apply for up to 7,000 euro in financial support from the European Commission by participating in the campaign.
