MILAN Jalen Reeves-Maybin Womens Jersey , Italy, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Europe has put sustainable mobility at the center of future "revolutionary policies" for better life of citizens, the mayors of some big cities in the European Union (EU) said here on Tuesday.

"Sustainable mobility has entered with full rights discussion among European ministers," Maurizio Lupi Kenny Golladay Womens Jersey , Transport Minister of the present EU rotating president Italy, told a press conference after a working lunch with mayors.

The talks on sustainable mobility were held during an ongoing informal meeting of EU transport ministers in Milan and on the kick-off day of European Sustainable Mobility Week, promoted by the European Commission (EC).

The initiative, which runs from Sept. 16 to Sept. 22 Teez Tabor Womens Jersey , aims at raising citizens' awareness of the interdependence between their mobility choices, a better use of urban spaces and pollution reduction.

"How to put technology at the service of public space and of citizens will be the revolution of 21st century," Barcelona Mayor Xavier Trias told the press conference.

Earlier in the day, Trias signed a collaboration agreement with Milan Mayor Giuliano Pisapia on the themes of smart city Jarrad Davis Womens Jersey , migration and development.

The two metropolitan cities, namely areas that includes a large core city and the nearby smaller towns, have already exchanged experiences on similar projects in the past and are both part of C40, a network of cities from around the world committed to implementing sustainable actions locally.

"Finally we see an attention to sustainable mobility on the part of Europe Kerryon Johnson Womens Jersey ," Pisapia stressed. For the first time, he added, there will be "a direct relation between the EC and metropolitan cities about funds at disposal for mobility."

Pisapia, whose center-left administration has particularly invested on sustainable mobility Frank Ragnow Womens Jersey , highlighted the concrete results brought by sustainable mobility policies.

A congestion pricing introduced in 2012 has generated a 30-percent traffic reduction and lowering by 60-70 percent of black carbon emissions in the Italian economic capital, also resulting in increased use of public transport as well as of bike and car sharing.

"We conducted information campaigns, including assemblies throughout Milan. But when citizens saw concrete results, it was easier to convince them of the righteousness of sustainable mobility Graham Glasgow Jersey ," Pisapia told Xinhua.

New media that are increasingly used in modern cities are an optimal tool to reach young generations, which can understand more easily the value of green initiatives, Leipzig Mayor Burkhard Jung said.

"We noted in Germany that young people do not want to have their own car anymore. They are more open-minded, and just use a car when they need it. Otherwise they prefer to use public transport system or share cars A'Shawn Robinson Jersey ," he said.

Jung underlined that internet services and new apps are very useful to develop sustainable mobility.

"Citizens must be involved in this process. They have to be enabled to propose their ideas thus be called to actively contribute to the improvement of life quality in their cities," he told Xinhua.

KIEV, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- A full-scale fighting may resume in eastern Ukraine with rising tensions between the government and the insurgents, a representative of pro-independence insurgents said on Monday.

"The situation may rapidly escalate into full-scale hostilities," Denis Pushilin, the official envoy of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic to the Trilateral Contact Group on the Ukraine crisis, told reporters.

Pushilin accused the Ukrainian army of violating the Minsk ceasefire agreement signed in February 2015.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian government military blamed the insurgents for stirring the violence, saying that the Ukrainian forces came under fire 85 times over the last 24 hours.

Later in the day, one civilian was killed and another one wounded during the overnight fighting near Yasynuvata town in Donetsk region, according to the insurgent-run DAN news agency.

Two insurgent soldiers were seriously injured in the hostilities, the agency added.

At least one government soldier was killed and six others were wounded, said Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko.

Hostilities had eased since September 2015, but this year in May the conflict flared up again as the two sides failed to find common grounds regarding holding local elections in Donetsk and Lugansk.

Overall, some 9,400 people have been killed and almost 22,000 others injured in the conflict that began in mid-April 2014.

NEW DELHI, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- At least 500 cows have died at a government-run shelter in India's western state of Rajasthan, local media reported Saturday.

The deaths took place during the past two weeks allegedly due to the negligence of officials at Hingonia cow shelter in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan.

"More than 500 cows have died in the last two weeks," a local TV news channel NDTV quoted volunteers at the shelter as saying.

According to officials 266 laborers engaged as contractual workers at the cow shelter went on strike last month demanding their salaries, which have been withheld since May.

The cows were thus left unattended.

Government veterinarian Devendra Kumar Yadav told media most of the cows have died from starvation.

"They have not been properly fed and that is the reason behind most of the deaths," Yadav said.

Officials were yet to disclose the death count of the cows at the country's biggest cow shelter and blamed rains for the deaths.

"All the city's sick cows are brought here and the other reason being ongoing heavy rains (monsoon)," Bhagwat Singh Dewal, chairman of the shelter said.

According to Dewal around 20 cows die at the shelter every day.
