Did you know that ELVITEN project has project Ambassadors? They are local representatives in ELVITEN demonstration cities.

As part of the awareness campaign, which has started even before the pilot and the real demonstrations started, an ambassador per city was chosen by the city partners to promote the ELVITEN project at local level, to support the campaign and demonstrations in Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala. Ambassadors have been playing an important role during the ongoing campaign and demonstrations with the main aim at increasing the attention of the public towards the project, its implementation and results.

European sustainable mobility awards

The European Commission has announced the winners of four sustainable mobility awards.

Kruševac (Serbia) was revealed as the winner of the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK Award 2019, with Karditsa (Greece) taking home the award for smaller municipalities. The 8th SUMP Award was won by Brussels Capital Region (Belgium), and the 1st EU Urban Road Safety Award went to Pontevedra (Spain).

The Commissioner for Transport, Adina Vălean said: “I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to the winning cities – your actions are powerful examples illustrating the leading role local leaders can play in making our cities cleaner, safer, and more sustainable. I hope this can serve as inspiration for towns and cities who are rethinking their mobility strategies, not least in the wake of the current pandemic.”

The city of Kruševac, Serbia impressed the jury with its wide variety of activities with strong citizen participation and political support form the government. The mayor himself commuted to work by walking to help spread the message and awareness of the 2019 mobility. During the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK 2019, the streets were empty with no cars and were taken over by pedestrians. They took the chance to revamp the roads by installing new cycle paths, walkways, public squares, urban parks, etc.

Every year the European Mobility Week campaign is held from 16-22 September to provide towns and cities with an opportunity to test out sustainable transport alternatives.  Last year over 3100 towns and cities participated.

Registration for this year edition of the European Mobility Week “Zero emission mobility for all” for towns and cities across Europe is open.

Interested to become a Follower City?

ELVITEN project aims to boost the usage of all categories of electric light vehicles (EL-Vs) in urban environment and ultimately achieve a mind shift among users by providing them with a better EL-V experience.

To accelerate the roll-out usage of EL-V’s in cities across Europe (Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala), ELVITEN aims to promote the transferability of ELVITEN usage schemes in numerous Follower European Cities that are interested in developing or already have electric mobility in their city.

Three offerings will be available for ELVITEN Follower Cities:

  1. Demonstrators – Follower Cities can learn from ELVITEN demonstration cities, the new activities that are relevant and tailored according to their stage of electric mobility development.
  2. Specialist Webinar – these webinars will bring small groups of ELVITEN cities together to address shared and common challenges, also based on the requests made in the statement of interest.
  3. Expert Group – this offering will pool all the knowledge, experience and expertise of the ELVITEN consortium partners and it will be used to address specific challenges and questions posed either by ELVITEN Follower Cities, or identified in discussions with Follower Cities.

To become a Follower City, interested cities will sign an agreement (“Statement of interest”) with ELVITEN project and then will receive support and guidance from the ELVITEN partners in order to either gain support for, establish or ultimately grow electric mobility systems in their cities.

If you are interested in becoming a ELVITEN Follower City, get in touch with us via an email: info@elviten-project.eu.
