- This event has passed.
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
The event is open to all those interested in mobility, especially members of organisations and platforms working on the issue, government officials, politicians and civil society associations.
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.
The events will be held via zoom and will have simultaneous translation from Spanish-English. Prior registration is required.
This is the third event of the series of conferences entitled “The Future of European Mobility”
One of the key factors in the economic development in our global society has been the ease of mobility for people and goods due to the abundance of cheap oil. But we can already witness the consequences of this irrational mobility 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 last session of the series will focus on the railway. The most efficient means of motorised transport which, beyond the AVE (high-speed rail line), has been losing its condition as the backbone of the Spanish geography. Should it recover that condition? Can a large part of freight be transferred to the railway?
