An initiative of the European Commission, Civitas (City-Vitality-Sustainability), presented its annual awards which recognise the ambitious and successful actions or policies that support cleaner, more effective city transportation, to three European cities following judging of 21 submissions.
This year, Donostia – San Sebastian, Spain took home the coveted prize for City of the Year; Reggio Emilia, Italy won in the Public Participation category; and Porto, Portugal, triumphed in Technical Innovation. Three runners-up were also recognised: Brighton and Hove, UK; Gdynia, Poland; and Nantes, France.
Civitas promotes cleaner, better, more sustainable and energy-efficient urban transport strategies in European cities through supporting them in the implementation of innovative measures and policies. The CIVITAS Awards have become a well-known reference point within the field of sustainable urban mobility.
Chosen by a jury of five independent experts, winners are showcased as examples of excellence, inspiring other cities across Europe to develop efficient urban transport solutions that lead to cleaner air and safer, more pleasant streets.
