Welcome to the first issue of Vol. 14 of IJSHE. It is amazing how quickly the journal has developed and has become one of the world’s leading sustainability journals. In this editorial I would like to discuss a new document produced by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability. It is a case study booklet on sustainable mobility and the measures some European cities have taken as part of European Mobility Week.
The biggest scheme of its kind, the European Mobility Week aims to influence urban mobility and transport in the long term and has begun to attract trans-continental interest. With a different theme each year, the case studies in this publication focus on the cities that followed the best practices towards “alternative mobility”. The guide considers a range of measures such as innovative campaigning activities and cooperation with stakeholders when analysing the practices of cities such as Zagreb, Sofia and the European Mobility Week Winners, Bologna. Since sustainable mobility is one of the most concrete ways to introduce sustainability principles in practice, it is hoped more such initiatives will be implemented in the future.
Enjoy your reading!
