Mobilising Mobility: For a more inclusive, equitable and accessible mobility - The INCLUSION toolbox
Does mobility function equally for all types of users? How important is mobility for all of us?
Lack of transport options means reduced access to goods and services, to job market, education, and recreational activities. Different users are vulnerable to exclusion for different reasons. This can be due to age, location, income, gender, ethnicity, physical or cognitive impairments, or combinations of these. As a result, there are many different mobility needs and varied solutions for addressing these needs.
This webinar explores the EU-funded INCLUSION project, which tested innovative measures for a more inclusive mobility in six pilot sites across Europe. The project came to an end in September 2020 and is now able to provide a “toolbox” with methods and solutions for designing and implementing a more inclusive mobility system for all. Our speakers discuss all.
The webinar will be moderated by Pasquale Cancellara.
Featured speakers include:
- Michele Masnata (AlgoWatt)
- Kristin Tovaas (Rupprecht Consult)
- Dr Steve Wright (Aberdeen University)
- Andrea Lorenzini (MemEx Srl)
The webinar is a Polis initiative in cooperation with the INCLUSION project.
INCLUSION is a 3-year project that aims to address a number of challenges related to the accessibility of public transport in specific urban and rural areas where accessibility, inclusive mobility and equity challenges are greatest. The main objective of INCLUSION is to understand, assess and evaluate the accessibility and inclusiveness of transport solutions in European prioritised areas. The project is identifying gaps and needs in order to propose and experiment with a range of innovative and transferable solutions. Accessible and inclusive public transport for all and especially for vulnerable categories is key to ensure equity of transport and social inclusion.
