Over the past four years, the three CIVITAS Living Lab projects – CIVITAS DESTINATIONS, CIVITAS ECCENTRIC and CIVITAS PORTIS – have been testing and demonstrating innovative mobility solutions.
As the projects draw to a close, join their final conference online from 6-20 October 2020 to discover their exciting results. The event will showcase 175 sustainable urban mobility measures implemented in 16 European cities, with a focus on:
- European port cities (CIVITAS PORTIS);
- Touristic cities looking to develop sustainable mobility solutions for tourists and residents alike (CIVITAS DESTINATIONS); and,
- European cities fostering sustainable mobility in peripheral areas, as well as testing innovative urban freight and logistics solutions (CIVITAS ECCENTRIC).
The first online session, which takes place on 6 October, 14.30 – 16:30 CEST, will be opened by Herald Ruijters, Director, DG MOVE, and Octavia Stepan, Project Officer, INEA.
After this, the three project coordinators will introduce their projects in a nutshell and discuss key achievements and lessons learnt. In doing so, they’ll pay particular attention to the cities themselves.
To enrich the sessions, a collection of material from the three projects is being compiled each week that links to that session's theme. Go here to find more materials – such as multimedia, publications, and leaflets - that shed further light on the projects' 16 Living Lab locations.
The next two sessions, which take place on 13 and 20 October between 14:30 and 16:30 CEST, look at the results of the measures and how they can be scaled up in the future.
