VCÖ Mobility Award 2021
The VCÖ Mobility Award is Austria’s biggest competition for sustainable mobility. It is supported by the Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology and the ÖBB.
We are looking for innovative projects for sustainable transport and mobility
The transport sector is at the beginning of several transformation processes: away from the combustion engine to emission-free drives, away from car-centred to multimodal mobility, away from private ownership of means of transport to increased sharing. The changes are speed up by digitisation.
The 30th VCÖ Mobility Award 2021is dedicated to the major changes in the transport sector and has the motto ‘Aufbruch in der Mobilität‘. In the worsening climate crisis in particular, the turnaround in traffic plays a central role. Today traffic is the biggest cause of climate-damaging emissions, tomorrow traffic should be the drive for improvements on the way to the climate target. It is important to prepare the ground today for sustainable and socially just mobility of tomorrow and what comes afterwards.

You can submit your project as well by using our German online submission form.
Submission deadline: June 1st 2021
Who can participate in the VCÖ Mobility Award?
Austria’s largest competition for sustainable transport and mobility is open to submission from the following: Companies, including transportation companies, municipalities, districts, research institutes, schools and universities as well as students, special interest groups and societies, campaign groups as well as private citizens. We accept: already implemented projects and projects with guaranteed funding, inspiring ideas or concepts for projects, as well as studies and work of research, which promote the socio-ecological transformation of the transport system and sustainable forms of mobility.
Transforming mobility needs courage and practice
Transport is Austria's biggest problem in terms of climate protection. How can traffic be brought on a climate course? How can mobility be socially just, economically efficient and be designed to be ecologically sustainable? How can companies handle mobility or goods transport ecologically? What can municipalities, cities and schools and universities do?
We are looking for submissions on the following topics:
- Active mobility
- Goods traffic, transport and logistics
- Mobility management (companies, schools, leisure, tourism)
- Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and Sharing
- Public and publicly accessible transport, multimodality
- Spatial planning, settlement development and housing
- Digitisation in mobility
- ‘Design for All’ – Mobility adressed to intergenerational and social needs

Der VCÖ verwendet Spenden sparsam und zielgerichtet und trägt daher das Österreichische Spendengütesiegel.
Mehr Platz für bewegungsaktive Mobilität
Grünflächen und begrünte Straßen fördern aktive Mobilität, wirken Hitzeinseln entgegen und tragen zum psychischen Wohlbefinden bei.
Mobilitätsfaktoren Wohnen und Siedlungsentwicklung
Wohnen beeinflusst die Klimabilanz der Mobilität stark. Die Wohnungs- und Siedlungspolitik ist ein wichtiger Hebel zum Erreichen der Klimaziele im Verkehr.
Güterverkehr auf Klimakurs bringen
Angesichts der Klimakrise steht der Güterverkehr vor großen Herausforderungen. Der Güterverkehr hat in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten stark zugenommen – vor allem auf der Straße.
