Community Programmes For Families In Hungary During European Mobility Week
A record number of municipalities have registered to join the EU’s European Mobility Week to be held next month, an official of the innovation and technology ministry said.

A total of 262 organisations have registered online and 233 have applied for domestic funding for programmes to be held during the event, State Secretary Balázs Weingartner told public news channel M1.

Most of the municipalities will organise community programmes including sporting events with a focus on families, he said. European Mobility Week, a European Commission initiative, is held each year between September 16 and 22.

It aims to encourage local authorities to introduce and promote sustainable forms of transport and call public attention to alternative transport options.
