Saving energy for sustainable urban mobility: European Mobility Week in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Together with numerous local partners and organisations and the local administrations of Banja Luka, Mostar and Sarajevo, the Office of the European Union in Bosnia and Herzegovina organised a series of educational and recreational activities for all generations in order to highlight the importance and numerous advantages of sustainable urban mobility. The popular and traditional leisure ride “Two Wheels are Enough” marked this year’s Car Free Day in Banja Luka on September 22. One of the goals of riding on the streets is to make cities suitable for cycling and to highlight the need to provide cyclists with urban cycle paths and the right to equal and active participation in traffic. On the same day, September 22, as part of the second celebration of European Mobility Week in Mostar, numerous citizens took part in the Third Mostar Bike Ride including a bike ride through the city streets and a race for the youngest.


European Mobility Week, the European Union’s leading initiative to raise awareness of sustainable urban mobility takes place every year from 16 to 22 September with the increasing participation of cities, organisations and initiatives across Europe and the world. This European initiative promotes behavioural changes in favour of active mobility, public transport and other clean, intelligent transport solutions.


This year’s theme of the European Mobility Week  “Save energy” with the slogan Mix and move! reflects the connection between energy efficiency and sustainable urban mobility. Energy and mobility poverty are on the rise due to higher costs for residents and businesses. Public transport operations continue to be a high expense for city budgets and reducing these expenses through energy efficient transport supports affordable and sustainable transport infrastructures.
