Alternative Transportation for Better Future in Serbia

“The European Mobility Week 2023 in Serbia is not only a celebration of our achievements in mobility, but also a reflection of our commitment to a sustainable future” is the message sent by the Ambassador of the European Union to Serbia, Emanuele Giaufret, in Novi Sad on the occasion of a bicycle ride as part of the Car Free Day.


On the occasion of the European Mobility Week, which promotes alternative ways of moving for the sake of preserving the environment, Ambassador Giaufret pointed out that through various projects financed by the European Union, there were opportunities to implement the most modern technology and best practices in environmental management. This year, the focus of the European Mobility Week is energy saving, and the bicycle proves that as a means of transportation it is an ideal way to save energy, whether it is electric or obtained from fossil fuels. The World Car Free Day is celebrated as part of the European Mobility Week, which lasts from September 16 to 22, every year on September 22.


Cities around the world, and especially in Europe, implement various measures and activities to mark this day and show their success in adapting the infrastructure to pedestrians and cyclists, as well as reducing pollution in their environments. Some of the cities close certain streets to motor traffic on this day, showing the importance of expanding pedestrian zones in the cities, others encourage citizens to ride bikes, walk and use public transport more on that day. The event was organized by the Novi Sad Cycling Initiative, EU Info Point Novi Sad and the Youth Union of the OPENS association.
