Grassroots – Rural mobility top-down and bottom-up | Second Rural Mobility Seminar

The second Rural Mobility Seminar took place on the 21 February 2019, in Vejle, Denmark. It proved to be a great success in discussing current Transport-On-Demand mobility solutions and fostering further exchange and cooperation between relevant stakeholders. Hosted by the MAMBA partners from Vejle, the event presented best practices and strategies and allowed for intense exchange of the participants. Highlights presented and discussed during the seminar included the Danish model for demand-controlled driving, the community-based app Nabogo (offering small scale ride-, freight- and trailer-sharing on a neighbourhood scale) and finally the “Asset Based Community Development”, providing insights how to best activate and involve the local community for more viable results.

The thematic focus of this seminar was set on grassroots initiatives, the challenges they face and the opportunities they bring. Particular emphasis was set on practical insights from successful projects and initiatives, and by organising this seminar, MAMBA provided ample space to network and mingle with other mobility stakeholders from the Baltic Sea Region and beyond.

The final report of the seminar can be found here.

MAMBA organises a series of altogether six Rural Mobility Seminars, each dedicated to one specific challenge in rural mobility.
