Kick-off Webinar of SURF e-course, to develop pathways for sustainable urban freight

The SURF (Sustainable URban Freight) Capacity Building Programme is kicking-off!

SURF is a collaboration with Environmental Defense Fund Europe, one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations working to turn environmental solutions into action. The Project develops and structures knowledge and awareness on Zero Emission Zones for Freight (ZEZ-F).

For its e-course, SURF will hold an introductory webinar on 15 September 2021 from 15:00-16:30 CET. This event will provide key information and guidance about the learning programme and the SURF project activities.

SURF e-course aims at equipping local and national policy makers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and operators with the skills and knowledge required to develop, implement and operate ZEZ-F. The objective is to raise awareness and establish long-lasting capabilities for all key stakeholders to successfully support the transition to zero emission deliveries.

The e-course is primarily designed for city and regional authorities but aims to provide a solid knowledge basis for any stakeholder involved in urban freight operations. The course will be openly available to all the public.

The e-course is organized in 3 Units:

  1. Why ZEZ for freight? The context
  2. Toward a Successful ZEZ-F: Steps for Action
  3. Keys to success

Register now for the kick-off webinar on 15 September, 15:00 – 16:30 CET.
