Better ways to move, better places to live: sustainable mobility in mediterranean coastal areas to work, study and visit

The Urban Transports Community is organizing a workshop in the framework of the UNIMED General Assembly in Venice. Locations will present its experience and solutions.

Densely populated, economically very active and rich in natural and cultural heritage, Mediterranean coastal areas attracts masses of people to visit, study and work and their ports receive most of the goods and resources for the European market. Developing sustainable urban transports has therefore become crucial to improve the quality of life.

Started in November 2016, the Interreg MED-funded projects of the MED Urban Transports Community  have designed, developed and tested a series of tools to make the mobility in Mediterranean coastal areas sustainable in places such as touristic towns, ports and university campuses. 

In the framework of the UNIMED General Assembly, Venice 25 or 26 October 2018, the GO SUMP project organizes a workshop were the “Results Analysis Report” will be discussed with representatives of Interreg MED projects, policy makers and scholars from Mediterranean Universities members of UNIMED, to draft an action plan for future steps to be taken.

Locations will present its experience and solutions, by the voice of Fabio Tomasi, project manager of Area Science Park.

Venue: Ca’ Foscari University, Venice (Italy).
