28 March – 3 April 2022 

 the Pow Mobility Week Challenge 2022

The transport sector is Europe’s second largest emitter of greenhouse gases; contributing more than a quarter of all emissions on the continent. Within the tourism sector, transport accounts for 75% of the global emissions and is one of the major contributions to climate change from the outdoor activities we all love. Transport is therefore a key part of our strategic plan for 2022 and it was great to kick off the year’s actions with #POWMobilityWeek.

Designed to raise awareness of the impact our travel emissions have on our planet, drive cultural change through promoting the use of sustainable transport choices and have some fun on the way, we were stoked to have you join us in this action.

POW Mobility Week has been registered as an action for the European Commission’s  awareness-raising campaign European Mobility Week 2022, which takes place in September. 

Total sustainable kilometers tracked during POW Mobility Week:

A Total of 20 040 KM were tracked sustainably during POW Mobility Week by 5 teams on Active Giving. The same as travelling half way around the world.

Mobility Week fortsätter in i helgen och idag så kan ni vinna två interrailbiljetter inne hos protectourwinterseurope - allt ni behöver göra är att kommentera deras inlägg med en rolig eller spännande resehistoria! Kom även ihåg att kika på den stora tävlingen under veckan då ni har chans att vinna en elcykel.

Och ikväll kl 19 så streamas filmen 12.000 km med vår ambassadör Tom-Oliver! Det vill ni inte missa. Mer info om det finns hos POW Europa.

Visste ni att Tågresor är det mest miljövänliga sättet för motoriserade persontransporter i Europa när det gäller utsläpp av växthusgaser.

Sammanlagt så är 75 % av det europeiska järnvägsnätet elektriskt, vilket minskar den lokala påverkan av luftföroreningar och frikopplar tågresorna från produktionen av fossila bränslen.

Tämä ei ole aprillipila vaan totista totta. Sen lisäksi, että kaikilta virtaltd asemilta sähköä ladatessasi voit olla varma että lataamasi sähkö on EKOenergia-sertifioitua tuulisähköä, niin #POWmobilityweekin ajan Rukalla, Pyhällä ja Sallassa autoa ladatessasi tuet koko lataussummalla POWin toimintaa. Toisin sanoen Virta lahjoittaa 100% mainittujen latureiden liikevaihdostaan talvien pelastamiseen.

…tämä siis koko kauden voimassa olevan 1€/lataus lahjoituksen lisäksi.

#repost • choongkatherine Isn't it even more fun when the very last move is a dyno🤪? I'm pretty sure I'll fall at this move a few times, I will need my superpowers to send this one 🦸‍♀️😂 Work in progress…
.
By the way, protectourwinterseurope is launching a new campaign. To be honest, I often use the car (car sharing at least) to go to the crag but this week-end I took my bike to join the POW Week Mobility (more info on their page). You can see in addition to my cycling skills, the cliff of Soyhieres behind the trees in my stories

Pliking = plocka upp + biking 🚴‍♂️🚮

Tänään kokeilin tätä minulle uutta lajia pyöräily-ploggingia.

Keräsin muovikassillisen roskaa. Fillarilla oli helppo kuljettaa ja lajitella jätteet asianmukaisiin roskiksiin.

Itse asiassa kerätessä tuli kävelyäkin eli plalkingia.

Pitää kesällä kokeilla vielä ainakin plultrarunning, plimbing ja plimming! 😃

As a part of Narvik’s and Norway’s bid for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 2027 they focus on mobility actions during the Norwegian Alpine Ski Championships that takes place in Narvik in the period March 30th – April 5th. Especially the potential for ride sharing to the ski area and competition arena for the many volunteers (around 300 people) that were a part of the event.

Their objective was to reduce the number of cars that pass through the city of Narvik during the course of the event and to also avoid a chaotic parking situations at the ski area.
