Two years from the kick-off of our European research project “MUV – Mobility Urban Values” and after more than 30.000 sustainable km done on foot, by bike and by public transports by the athletes who downloaded and use the mobile app, we are excited to announce the launch of the most important challenge: the first Sustainable City Tournament.
Eight teams will compete in this new, exciting, game mode: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Fundao, Ghent, Helsinki, Palermo, Rome and Teresina.
Ten more cities have indeed joined the six pilot cities of the project thanks to the Open Call launched in September 2018.
Among the newcomers, Rome and the Brazilian Teresina have immediately distinguished themselves for their willing to play and try to change the mobility habits of their communities.
The Tournament will start on June 3 and end on July 21. Seven weeks of direct weekly matches in a real sports competition at the end of which the best team will win the title of most sustainable city.
In the first round, Palermo will challenge Barcelona without fear. The athletes of Palermo are in fact many and super competitive as well as the coach of the team, the Mobility Councilor Giusto Catania.
Good luck to all the teams but we definitely support Palermo!
