Episode 3 - Sustainable mobility and tourism: the perfect pair

Do you want to go green and get around using sustainable mobility on holiday? Did you know that promoting environmentally friendly travel options could be good for business? Closing the first season of the Mobility Marvels series, we present you CIVITAS DESTINATIONS.

To keep high-polluting vehicles off the road, DESTINATIONS tested different measures in six European island locations: Elba in Italy, the Portuguese island of Madeira (and its capital Funchal), Limassol in Cyprus, Rethymno on the Greek island of Crete, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in Spain, and the Valletta Region of Malta.

Joining us in the final episode of this season are Claudio Mantero, Project Coordinator, and Paul Curtis, DESTINATIONS Technical Manager.

They reveal how the project fostered clean transport, including public e-bike sharing systems and low- and zero-emission public transport, and focused on promoting these services and stimulating behavioural change among residents and tourists.
