The purpose of Sustainable Transportation Week is to raise awareness in residents and decision markers in the Ottawa region regarding the need to change their travel habits, for their own good and that of the environment.
Sustainable Transportation Week has something for everyone: lectures, demonstrations, activities in the street, contests, etc.
What’s more, Sustainable Transportation Week is part of an international movement as it echoes European Mobility Week, which is organized every year in hundreds of cities across Europe.
