|| Procuring sustainable urban transport systems in cities around the world is a challenge made all the more difficult by rapidly increasing levels of urbanization and congestion. Already, promising changes to existing systems to make room for car and bike sharing and a host of new, smarter modes of travel have altered the way we think about mobility. However, managing these changes is not always straightforward and as a rule requires cooperation between interconnected public authorities at multiple levels of governance.
n this EFEX webinar Marijke de Roeck, lead project coordinator of the CIVITAS Portis initiative and Katia Kishchenko, local dissemination manager, will discuss sustainable mobility in the city of Antwerp, Belgium. Their talk will touch on the importance of improving cooperation between relevant bodies—in the case of Antwerp, the port and municipal authorities—as well as the city’s growing experience with shared mobility services. They will also discuss major findings of the CIVITAS Portis project regarding transport choice and behavioral change. The webinar will be moderated by Matthias Duwe, Head Climate at Ecologic Institute.
