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 ? »

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.


What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.


A “repair bonus” to boost the circular economy?

With a bonus, the Ministry of the Environment in Thuringia wants to encourage people to have their electrical appliances repaired instead of throwing them away. DP MP Max Hahn therefore asked if this would not be a way to strengthen the circular economy also here in Luxembourg.
