How can mobility policies open the road for better mobility and accessibility in rural areas? – Final Web Conference, Session #3

The third and last installment of the MAMBA Final Web Conference took place on 17 September 2020. Around 70 participants came together online and participated in a session that had as main focus how decision-makers can contribute to improve conditions for innovative and impactful approaches to mobility and accessibility in rural Europe? The final chapter of the MAMBA Final Web Conference gathered experts from politics, administration and academia who engaged in conversations about the responsibility and impact of decision-makers when it comes to tackling rural mobility challenges.
