#WeMoveSmart is the new social media campaign launched on occasion of the European Mobility Week (16 – 22 September 2020) by the cities involved in EU-funded smart cities projects. The goal? Inviting citizens to share pictures, videos or short stories on their sustainable way to move around.
On the occasion of the next EU Mobility Week, taking place from the 16th to the 22nd of September, 17 smart cities projects launch a virtual flash mob #WeMoveSmart to raise the issue of sustainable mobility in cities. The transport sector is one of the main causes of air pollution in urban areas and shifting to green mobility is fundamental to guarantee a good quality of life to cities’ inhabitants. The European Mobility week, whose theme this year is “Zero-emission mobility for all”, is the perfect occasion to raise awareness on this important topic.
That’s why the smart cities launch an appeal: “Show us your green way to move around. Take pictures, videos and write short stories on your urban green routes and share them on social media during the EU Mobility Week along with the hashtag #WeMoveSmart”. Feet, bike, e-vehicles, but also public transport are the many ways to reduce emissions and traffic congestions.
During the European Mobility Week the smart cities projects will also share cards featuring the innovative solutions that they are implementing to ensure the transition to a more sustainable future for urban transport, to reduce car-use and transport emissions. Solutions include the creation of public electric transport infrastructures, development of vehicle to grid technologies, public smart lamp post to charge electric vehicles, smart traffic prediction systems, solar-powered e-ink displays in multimodal hubs and much more.
So, what are you waiting for? Share your #WeMoveSmart pictures, videos and stories on your social media channels.
