Join CIVITAS on 26–27 January 2022 9:00-18:00 (UTC+1) for both a CIVITAS regional city exchange workshop on rural-urban mobility, and a CIVITAS incubation workshop presenting tools to develop long-term mobility solutions. The workshops can be attended online or in-person in Koprivnica (Croatia). Participation is free, and registration is mandatory.

Incubation workshop

Will be a half-day event on 26 January 13:00-16:00 (UTC+1). Mobility solutions no longer come from single providers, such as city mobility departments, a single public transport authority, or an infrastructure provider. They are now developed and delivered by various stakeholders, based on a clear understanding of mobility needs. This incubation workshop will present some of the tools and instruments that can be used to develop interventions in this complex environment, which are acceptable, financially viable, legally possible and self-sustaining in the long-term. Mobility service providers and local authorities, in particular, are invited to join.

Regional City Exchange Workshop

Will be held on 27 January. Koprivnica is a small city of 33,700 inhabitants in north-west Croatia. While active sustainable mobility policies have resulted in a high percentage of cyclists and pedestrians in the city centre, the city continues to grapple with the challenges of making local transport more sustainable, expanding the public transport network and improving sustainable mobility outside of the urban core, which is important for Koprivnica to be better connected to its smaller neighbouring municipalities. As a result, the workshop will focus on rural-urban mobility and tackle the question of how to sustainably connect small cities? All mobility stakeholders, including local authorities, those working in the mobility sector, mobility service providers, students and researchers are invited to join. To tackle this question, the workshop will reflect on the work begun when Koprivinca was an active city in the CIVITAS DYN@MO. Discussions will be complemented by a site visit.  

This is the second in a series of three CIVITAS regional city exchange workshops. For more information about the first such workshop, read the resulting Aachen Success Story e-booklet.
