Towards Sustainable Mobility in European Cities – Insights and Issues for Policy Makers and Researchers

Date: March 21-22, 2013
Venue: Hotel Danube Bratislava/Slovak Republic

with high-level keynote speakers from policy, science and society:

  • Representative of the Slovak Ministry of the Environment, Bratislava (tbc)

Organised by the Institute for Forecasting Studies of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the Slovak Ministry of the Environment, the event will draw together a selected group of researchers, policy-makers, activists and business representatives from the EU and neighbouring countries.

Questions we plan to explore include:

  • What are the trends in urban mobility and what could we learn from adverse and promising examples?
  • What are the policies and practices to strengthen sustainable urban mobility and to promote sustainable mobility lifestyles?
  • What are the visions of low-carbon, secure and competitive mobility systems in cities?
  • How could sustainable mobility approaches reduce spatial segregation, urban sprawl and promote social inclusion?
  • How to move towards effective mobility policy making in the real world?

This event will be a moderated, open discussion among about 35-40 experts stimulated by several keynotes. We would very much appreciate if you would join us and share your views and experiences on the topic. Your participation would add vital perspective to this timely debate!
