While it varies from country to country, mobility is changing rapidly: eco-friendly mobility, innovative bike lanes, but also the decline of public transport. The COVID pandemic has also attributed to the need for change in mobility and technological innovation, vehicle sharing, and the use of electric vehicles.
Many of these mobility initiatives need an active dialogue with citizens, to get the necessary support and participation. But what are the best ways to communicate about these mobility initiatives, while there are so many different opinions and interests at stake?
Together with experts and Greens from local governments, we will dig deeper into the question how to get mobility initiatives from the ground, with sound communication and public support.
