Cities are where the negative impacts of traffic and congestion are most obvious. Air pollution, mostly from diesel vehicles, is a public health emergency and responsible for around 300,000 early deaths across Europe each year. The road transport sector is one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas emissions driving up dangerous global heating.
We want to see Europe’s city leaders reach for the sky in their efforts to design the liveable cities of the future. We want to see an increase in the number of low- and zero-emission zones and we want to see School Streets created across the continent.
The campaign is hosted by Transport & Environment.
