Boosting active mobility and mobility management for climate friendly, healthy and energy saving mobility in Europe” – a contribution to THE PEP relay race workshop series.
How can we develop active, health-promoting mobility and climate-friendly mobility management? What can cities and municipalities, businesses, the tourism sector and educational institutions do to make their own mobility climate-friendly and health-promoting? Which supporting initiatives for active, climate-friendly mobility management on a national and EU level are necessary and need to be expanded? Which contributions can the Transport, Health and Environment Pan European Programme (THE PEP) make?
These important questions concerning the mobility transition will be discussed at the THE PEP Partnership & klimaaktiv mobil conference from 25-27 April 2023 in Vienna. Another focus of the conference will be the exchange of experiences and best practice examples from Austria and Europe. The new extended funding options of the klimaaktiv mobil programme for active mobility and mobility management for Austria‘s cities and municipalities, businesses and tourism as well as educational institutions will be presented.
The conference will be opened by Leonore Gewessler, Austrian Federal Minister for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology and Johannes Rauch, Austrian Federal Minister for Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection, in a strategy dialogue with Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President European Commission (tbc), Olga Algayerova, Executive Secretary of the UNECE, Francesca Racioppi, WHO European Centre for Environment and Health, Karlheinz Kopf, Secretary General of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and Manuel Marsilio, General Manager Confederation of the European Bicycle Industry.
