"Our Region, Our Future – Towards a Decade of Innovation and Sustainability"
The 11th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region is organized in an exceptional time. The Action Plan of the Strategy will be updated and the European Commission is coming forward with new initiatives such as the European Green Deal and many more.
The Baltic Sea Region has a unique opportunity to be a forerunner, which is why the Annual Forum is looking Towards a Decade of Innovation and Sustainability.
EU has already set out a clear vision of how to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. To deliver the European Green Deal, there is a need to rethink policies for clean energy supply across the economy, industry, production and consumption, large-scale infrastructure, transport, food and agriculture, construction, taxation and social benefits. Transport accounts for a quarter of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions, and still growing.
The conference combines two leading events from Europe’s transport calendar: the CIVITAS Forum Conference and the European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). It will allow policymakers, local authorities, academics, NGOs, urban transport practitioners, urban planners and all those putting the SUMP concept into practice to share their experiences using a virtual forum.
The workshop is going to be held within the framework of 11th Annual Forum of the EUSBSR. It will focus on digitalisation of port operations and procedures, including the associated opportunities, threats and hazards. In this context, the aim is to promote new and sustainable business models, innovations, project initiatives and intra-regional collaboration in the Baltic Sea Region.
During these three days highlights from the projects cities.multimodal, SUMBA and BSR electric will be presented along with virtual tours of project results, intriguing discussions about what the future holds for sustainable urban mobility in our region and much more.
Electrification of municipal and private fleets is a topic of key importance as cities across Europe are looking to reduce their carbon and pollutant emissions. Municipalities have a range of options to influence and impact this transition.
Due to the current situation, the TRA2020 has been cancelled.
TRA, the Transport Research Arena, is the largest European research and technology conference on transport and mobility. TRA2020 takes place in Helsinki on 27-30 April 2020 and is "Rethinking transport – Towards clean and inclusive mobility".
Living in the city without a car and travelling sustainably in an easy and accessible way? Cities can make this possible by installing mobility stations.
The City of Munich, like so many European cities, is seeing new housing development and new residential areas growing. The city wants to move away from the usual one parking spot per housing unit regulation, freeing up public space for other uses and supporting its citizens in making sustainable mobility choices at the same time.
The very first HUPMOBILE webinar will be held on Wednesday, 18 December 2019 at 10:00-11:30 CET (Central European Time). The webinar will be targeted at any city in the Baltic Sea Region who is interested to learn, give feedback and test holistic mobility solutions along the cities of Tallinn, Riga, Turku and Hamburg participating in the project.
