LHAC participating in the European Commission's Sustainable Urban Mobility Campaign
The League of Historical and Accessible Cities is now registered as a campaign action on sustainable urban mobility under the DO THE RIGHT MIX European Commission Campaign and can now be viewed on the campaign website here (Search using the “list view” and "by country" taping France, Italy, Denmark or Spain).
Launched in July 2012, the European Commission’s Sustainable Urban Mobility campaign is a three-year initiative aiming to support sustainable urban mobility campaigners in the European Union’s 27 Member States, plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Croatia.The campaign is managed by the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport and funded through the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme – the EU’s support programme for non-technological actions in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. The core objective of this campaign is to promote the advantages of combining different modes of transportation. The campaign bears the slogan ‘Do the Right Mix’, and aims to highlight and advertise the fact that by using different modes of transportation for each journey as appropriate, people can improve their health, their finances, and the environment. The aim of the campaign is to provide actors with a platform to support and showcase their activities increasing at the same time the collaboration with each other and with the wider world.
The League of Historical and Accessible Cities (LHAC) is well framed in this European Commission initiative as its main aim is allowing elderly, people with disabilities, and generally speaking every person, to visit independently interesting buildings, museums, parks, restaurants, shops, hotels and other key tourist attractions within the 5 historical cities involved in the project. The LHAC, besides improving the accessibility for all by implementing an accessible tourist route within the city centres, is promoting at the same time, sustainable tourism development with the overall aim to find innovative ways to reconcile cultural heritage protection and accessibility.
