Sherbrooke’s Center for sustainable mobility announced on Tuesday the programming for this year’s 8th edition of “Sustainable Mobility Week,” which will take place from the 16th to the 22nd of September. As in past years the week will involve activities that highlight and support the advantages of alternative forms of transportation including carpooling, ride-sharing, cycling, walking, running, and public transit, among other options. “Sherbrooke is one of the cities in the avant garde of sustainable mobility,” said the Centre for Sustainable Mobility’s President, Marc Denault, pointing out that among other things, the city has one of the highest concentrations of electric vehicles in the province. Denault referred to the week as, “an opportunity for everyone to take concrete steps to reduce greenhouse gasses.” Jean Pinard, longtime volunteer with the Sherbrooke cycling club, was selected as the honourary chairperson of this year’s week for sustainable mobility.
