ECOMM 2022 - Turku / Finland

UPDATE: ECOMM 2022 successfully took place in Turku/Finland in June 2022

Around 250 participants from all over the world gathered in Turku (FI) to be inspired by the presentations and discussions at the 25th ECOMM in June 2022.

Once more it became clear, that big challenges are ahead of us and joint actions are needed to become independent of fossile fuels, to become climate neutral and to rebalance public space for active mobility.

Beside clean technology and renewable energy, clever mobility management has to be implemented to make climate friendly active mobility and public transport the easy and convenient mobility choice for our citizens.

Here the main conclusions and inspirations of ECOMM 2022:

* Live is the new Online: What an inspiring opportunity being able to meet in person again to discuss, share talk walk dance enjoy together... made a real difference

* Humans and their needs should be in the centre of mobility and transport policies and not the requirements of technology or robots! Mobility Management makes the difference as it builds on the user's perspective!

* Make the sustainable climate-friendly healthy mobility the easy choice! Active mobility public transport e-mobility based on renewable must be convenient and easy accessible.

* Motivate the actors in transport like cities companies or tourism schools to develop and realize climate friendly mobility management and provide supportive national frameworks with funding offers for sustainable mobility management solutions.

* Break the silos, learn from sharing ideas good and bad practice and intensify cooperation and promotion of multimodal mobility management locally nationally and on European levels.
