2 – 4 October 2019: CIVITAS Forum Graz (Austria)
MAMBA is glad to announce that the project will co-present a session on rural and peri-urban mobility at the 17th CIVITAS Forum Conference 2019 in Graz (Austria) from 2 – 4 October 2019. CIVITAS is a network of cities for cities dedicated to cleaner, better transport in Europe and beyond. While the main scope of CIVITAS is on urban [sic] mobility issues, MAMBA will bring in its “rural experiences” to discuss what cities can learn from rural mobility and vice versa. The 90-minutes session is titled “Transport for all: challenges, opportunities and new tools to improve mobility in rural and peri-urban areas” and will be co-hosted by the projects INCLUSION, SMARTA, HiReach and input on the La Paz and El Alto cable car system in Bolivia.
MAMBA’s contribution to the session will focus on lessons learnt in the implementation of its various pilot actions. Based on these experiences, MAMBA’s input to the forum will call for genuine rural-specific strategies to rural mobility innovations that reflect the specific demand patterns of rural communities and consider socio-cultural and socio-economic specificities.
