32 Flemish municipalities and Brussels take part in Car Free Sunday

During the European Mobility Week (16-22 September), various actions are taking place all over Flanders. During the week, public space is temporarily conquered by cyclists and pedestrians. The best-known event is Car Free Sunday on 18 September.

On Friday, schoolchildren and their parents were encouraged to come to school on foot or by bike. This not only has an effect on a quieter and safer school environment, but children should also be able to concentrate better in class.

Today, Car Free Sunday is taking place. Cars are temporarily banned from streets all over Flanders. This will give residents and visitors all the space they need to cycle, skate or take a leisurely stroll.

Finally, next Thursday is the 'Behaviour in change' day. Participants will consider the results and policy recommendations of the 30 Dagen Minder Wagen (30 Days Fewer Cars) campaign, in the presence of Flemish minister for Mobility Lydia Peeters.

This year, 32 Flemish municipalities are organising a Car Free Sunday on 18 September. Mobility Week has been organised as a campaign for sustainable mobility and conscious car use since 1996.
