The European Commission has revealed the list of the 18 European initiatives it has decided to fund under its “Do the right mix” campaign.
These initiatives will receive a maximum support of 7 000 euro, which should enable them to consolidate their activities aiming at supporting sustainable urban mobility.

Since the launch of the campaign in 2012, nearly 380 sustainable urban mobility actions have been registered on the central www.dotherightmix.euwebsite. The ongoing and upcoming actions are displayed on the innovative Mobility Map, which provides Europe-wide visibility for campaigners. The second call for funding saw 74 applications from 18 eligible countries.. The third and final call for sustainable mobility funding will open in March 2014.

Similarly to last year, groups of individuals as well as non-commercial entities (schools, NGOs, public administrations, etc) were eligible to apply. Campaigners in Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Romania and the UK were, however, not invited to apply as these countries already receive targeted support for setting up national campaigns. Successful applicants were selected by a panel of expert judges, all experienced in the field of sustainable mobility.

The European Commission’s Sustainable Urban Mobility campaign is linked to the European Mobility Week, which runs from 16 to 22 September every year and culminates in the ’In Town Without My Car!’ day. The campaign is funded through the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme – the EU’s support programme for non-technological actions in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
