Urban Transports Community shares ways to foster sustainable mobility in new video
Carbon emissions profoundly impact the quality of life in a city. One way to reduce these emissions is to promote Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning: something that the Urban Transports Community has been doing from start to end.
Gathering 7 projects, 120+ organisations, and 13 countries, this Interreg MED Initiative recently ended (December 2022), leaving behind a rich contribution to the work of SUMPs in the Mediterranean. In particular, the project saw the development and dissemination of four Policy Briefs:
- POLICY BRIEF #1 Promoting soft mobility in the Mediterranean
- POLICY BRIEF #2 Tourism and Mobility in the Mediterranean
- POLICY BRIEF #3 E-Mobility in the Mediterranean
- POLICY BRIEF #4 Urban Mobility Adaptation to Climate Change
All the Policy Briefs, in different languages, are available on a dedicated page on the Urban Transports Community's official website.
A summary video to understand the UTC's main recommendations
While in the past months we extensively covered the release of each of these briefs - check our news 'Promoting soft mobility in the Mediterranean: Policy Brief now available!', 'Urban Transports Community shares policy brief on sustainable tourism and mobility in the Mediterranean', 'Policy brief on e-mobility in the Mediterranean: a piece of the puzzle for decarbonisation', and 'Urban Transport Community publishes brief on urban mobility adaptation to climate change' to refresh your memory, we decided to create an Urban Transports Community summary video to guide you through the main policy recommendations coming out of each Policy Brief. You can watch the video below:
By showing the animated stories of Carlos, Lea, Diego, and Sofia, the video explores all things Urban Transports. From how communication campaigns and improved access to and quality of infrastructure can help citizens choose soft mobility, to how active mobility, public transport, and e-mobility can support tourism and day-to-day life in the Mediterranean, all will be revealed.
