Why do fewer municipalities take part in the European Mobility Week from year to year?

The European Mobility Week aims to raise awareness for more sustainable forms of mobility than cars. As fewer and fewer municipalities are taking part in this initiative from year to year, DP MP Gusty Graas has asked the minister responsible what this entails and how to reverse the trend.

« Chaque année, du 16 au 22 septembre, se déroule la semaine européenne de la mobilité dans un bon nombre de pays en Europe et au-delà, afin de sensibiliser les citoyens à des modes de transport plus durables, en organisant par exemple une journée sans voiture.

Or, force est de constater qu’en 2021 seulement 23 des 102 communes du Luxembourg participeront à cette initiative, tandis qu’en 2008 encore 100 communes s’y étaient inscrites.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • Quelles sont les raisons pour ce déclin de la participation des communes ?
  • De quelle manière Monsieur le Ministre entend-il encourager une participation plus importante des communes les prochaines années ? »
