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.
