European Mobility Week 2023
Every year, from 16 to 22 September, European citizens have the opportunity to enjoy a whole week of activities dedicated to sustainable mobility, with the aim of promoting a wide-ranging debate on the need to change behaviour in relation to mobility, particularly with regard to the use of private cars. In this context, the Municipality of Vila Nova de Famalicão, through the Transport and Mobility Department, once again intends to mark European Mobility Week, this year with Energy Efficiency as the central theme of the campaign, maintaining the slogan of the last edition “Combine and Move”.
