First HUPMOBILE webinar invited BSR cities to join project activities


All of the project partners had an opportunity to discuss their activities and work packages in the project as well as highlight the role of the Follower Cities to the project outcomes. The webinar attracted city representatives and mobility experts from other organisations - we had attendees from Estonia, Sweden, Latvia, Finland as well as far as from Indonesia. 

The webinar was moderated by Jutta Mäkinen, Communication and Network Manager from the Union of the Baltic Cities Sustainable Cities Commission whereas the main introduction to the HUPMOBILE project and the role of the Follower Cities was given by Tero Haahtela from the lead partner, Aalto University. After the general introduction came the more specific overviews of the concrete work packages:
