European Mobility Week is celebrated in the Principality every year from September 16 to 22. Across the week, numerous activities will encourage the public to “travel differently”.
On the initiative of the Department of the Environment and in partnership with the Electric Vehicles Club, Monaco Sustainable Development (MC2D) and Monaco City Hall, this year’s events will be an opportunity for adults to test-drive electric vehicles and for children to take part in a game to promote awareness of the various types of mobility now available.
From Saturday, September 16, to Sunday, September 17, a festive mobility event will take place at Rose des Vents in Larvotto from 10 am to 6 pm, when Renault and Eccity will be offering free test-drives of two- and four-wheeled electric vehicles.
The Monegasque Bus Company and Mobee will be offering the chance to try their self-service electric vehicles, bikes and Twizys – an opportunity to find out how these concepts work and learn about memberships.
The Mediterranean Institute for Market Research and Sustainable Development will present and lead games on the theme of mobility, while younger visitors will be able to take part in Bio-Logika, a fun, educational game to raise awareness of the various forms of mobility – cars, bicycles, buses, walking – as well as a variety of recreational workshops.
Several challenges will be offered for 5 to14 year-olds. There will be various recreational, sporting and educational workshops, in which children can compete with their parents in a good-natured atmosphere.

Alexis Jacquemond, a 20-year-old from Cap d’Ail, has been killed in a scooter accident at the exit of the IM2S tunnel, while travelling in the direction of Nice. Although the accident took place in the early hours of Saturday, July 15, it came to light only on Tuesday, three days later.
The young man had been travelling from a barbecue at Le Méridien in Monaco and was being followed by a friend on a second scooter when Alexis lost control of his vehicle approaching the exit of the tunnel, violently hitting the parapet.
Alerted by his friend, the Monaco fire service, paramedics and the police attended the scene, but the young man could not be saved.
