We are taking advantage of the launch of the Spanish version of the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s European Mobility Atlas to further deepen the debate on the future of mobility in Europe and its contribution to the EU objectives of decarbonisation of the economy. Would you like to participate?
About the Event
This event is targeted at people interested in mobility, especially members of organisations and platforms working on the issue, government officials, politicians and civil society associations, but also the general public.
Our aim is to publicise more sustainable alternatives when choosing a means of transport and to raise awareness of the need to change our mobility habits.
This is the first event of the series of conferences entitled “The Future of European Mobility”.
One of the key factors in the development of our global society has been the ease with which we move around and transport goods thanks to the abundance of cheap oil. But the consequences of this irrational mobility are already being felt in the form of the climate crisis and air pollution.
In order to achieve Europe’s decarbonisation goals, the transport sector is a priority. That is why the German Heinrich Böll Foundation launched last year the European Mobility Atlas, a comprehensive analysis of the situation of the sector in Europe. The Green European Foundation and the Fundació Nous Horitzons have translated the Atlas into Spanish and, together with Transición Verde, have prepared a specific annex on the situation in Spain. For its launch, we have organised three online events on some modes of transport whose future is key to move towards low-emission mobility.
The first session will focus on aviation, the only sector which, until the pandemic, continued to increase its emissions. What’s the current state of play of the aviation industry? What are its prospects? We will take the opportunity to take a closer look at the controversy surrounding the expansion of El Prat airport (Barcelona).
– Sergi Alegre, director general of the Airport Regions Council
– Raúl Gómez, director of Transición Verde Foundation
– Joan Herrera (Director of the Environment Department of El Prat City Council).
Moderation: Susanne Rieger (Member of the Board of Directors of the Green European Foundation)
Date and Time: Tuesday 1st February, 18:00-19:30
The events will be held via zoom and will have simultaneous translation from Spanish-English. Please register here.
The day before each session we will send a message to the registered persons with the access link.
The sessions will be recorded and made available on YouTube.
This event is organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Transición Verde and Fundació Nous Horitzons, and with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
