DEMO-EC Project

DEMO-EC: Development of sustainable Mobility management in European Cities

GEINNOVA is a collaborator in the DEMO-EC project, which aims to promote the use of low-carbon transport in cities of different countries within the European Union. The objective is to promote behavioural change by reducing the number of cars and promoting the use of public transport, bicycles, or walking.

In order to promote the use of environmentally friendly means of transport and thus reduce CO2 consumption, DEMO-EC seeks to encourage the combination of different environmentally friendly modes of transport such as public transport, cycling but also new mobility solutions. One of the ways to combine these modes is a mobility management approach. The challenge in this respect is that municipal administrations lack instruments and responsibilities are not clear.

Therefore, the main objective of the DEMO-EC project is to integrate mobility management into the development plans of several cities. The project also aims to positively influence policies in the field of low-carbon transport. The aim is to push cities to consider low-carbon alternatives for their mobility but also to promote alternative mobility behaviour.

To achieve these goals, DEMO-EC partners consisting of cities and regional development agencies in Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, and Slovenia are developing 7 different regional action plans. These plans are resulting from the collection and exchange of best practices at local, regional, national, and European level in the fields of behaviour change, governance/participation, car reduction (walking, cycling) and public transport.

SuSTowns Project

INTERREG MED – EU

Enhancing the tourist attractiveness of small and fascinating villages

The INTERREG MED project “SUSTOWNS” – Enhancing SUStainable tourism attraction in small fascinating small TOWNS, has as its main objective to promote the rejuvenation of small fascinating tourist destinations in rural territories and islands, through the exchange of good practices and promoting the development of Sustainable Tourism Action Plans addressed to regional, national and international tourism authorities in the intervention area (MED).

SUSTOWNS focuses on three types of target groups:

1 – Second home owners – These are people with personal or family ties who, usually for work reasons, do not live in the territories concerned and only visit (especially during long holiday periods). The specific objective is to increase the frequency of visits from 1 or 2 times a year on average to 2 additional weekends a year in order to achieve a multiplier effect both on the local economy and on the visibility and strengthening of personal links with these municipalities.

2 – New residents – The objective with this public is to integrate them into the population and to introduce them to all the activities and possibilities offered by the territory in order, on the one hand, to reinforce their links with the population and, on the other hand, to provoke a pull effect.

3 – Pensioners – Attract them and make them residents, as they could find the ideal environment to enjoy a high quality of life.

To achieve this, the project is divided into three phases:

  • Phase 1: Identification of the people who make up each of the target groups and categorisation by interests.
  • Phase 2: Creation of direct communication channels with them.
  • Phase 3: Consolidation of monthly agendas of activities aligned with the identified interests.

The countries involved in the SusTowns project are Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Greece, Albania, Croatia and Portugal.
