In the light of the planned EU/UK embargo on Russian oil, the ongoing energy crisis and the climate emergency, many people can agree there is an urgent need to reduce Europe’s fossil fuel con-
sumption. The question is how to do it.
Car-free days are one of the most effective ways to rapidly reduce oil consumption in the short term. Our analysis estimates that one single car-free day implemented in major European cities could save between 534 and 932 thousand barrels of oil!
That’s why we’re calling on cities to quickly introduce regular car-free days at least until the energy crisis is over.
