Reshaping mobility – towards a climate-friendly mobility in Central and Eastern Europe – EUKI

The European Climate Initiative (EUKI) Academy webseminar.

Reshaping mobility – towards a climate-friendly mobility in Central and Eastern Europe
on Wednesday, 12 May 2021
11:00-12:30 CET, via this MS Teams link*

This EUKI Academy webseminar will focus on emissions from passenger transport and opportunities for emissions reductions in countries of Central and Eastern Europe. COVID-19 has changed the way we travel. On one hand, the number of travels for holiday and leisure reasons has decreased rapidly. Lockdown measures and the new popularity of “home offices” added to this development. At the same time there has been a shift in the use of transport means. While public transport has suffered, cycling has seen an unexpected boom. Also, the use of private cars gained popularity in COVID times even though this trend – other than on the bicycle market – did not lead to a significant increase of new car registrations. All in all, there have been positive as well as negative developments for a shift towards a climate friendly mobility and without doubt the pandemic has opened-up opportunities that are worth to discuss.

This online event will feature two exciting projects of the European Climate Initiative currently underway that are investigating how to increase mobility options, while reducing their negative repercussions such as CO2 emissions, air pollution, traffic congestion and noise pollution. Both projects explore how to realistically apply best practices on the ground. Special attention is given to the promotion of zero emission and low carbon modes of transport (e.g. cycling, walking, busses, trains), that could replace some emissions intensive modes of transport (e.g. cars or short-haul planes).

This event is open to anyone interested in sustainable, high quality mobility. Inputs and ideas on how to increase the relevance of the projects’ outputs during or after the event will be very welcome.

There will be Q&A sessions with the speakers where you can ask questions. The session will be held in English.
