Managing transport demand to attain sustainable development and economic effectiveness - why and how?

The use of cars is growing steadily and has negative consequences such as pollution and daily traffic congestion. Statistical forecasts show that demand for passenger and freight transport is increasing. How can mobility management help to break down the connection between economic growth and transport growth?

New forms of co-operation are required to bring mobility management into the early phases of planning processes. New structures, forums and meeting places must be developed. How will the new structures and new partnerships function and what status will they have? How can mobility management be implemented in the planning process?

The ECOMM conferences will by these mobility management experiences contribute to the development of sustainable transportation.
