Working Group: Sustainable Moving

Sustainable MovingThe working group on mobility will focus on the current and sustainable patterns of the citizens’ everyday mobility. Considerations are what ways personal mobility is fulfilled through use of individual cars and public transport, by walking or cycling. During the stakeholder dialogue the group will evaluate the impact of everyday mobility patterns on the environment, e.g. greenhouse gas emission, road-system, spatial planning, air pollution, etc. and the impact of every day mobility on the society: family, local community, transport services, safety transport, transport and time management, etc., including the impact of current patterns of personal mobility on the present and future generations. Another topic is alternative means of business communication, e.g. video and teleconferencing and alternative priorities when it comes to travelling for pleasure and leisure. Finally the group will also highlight the impact of everyday mobility on technological innovation and vice versa.

The mobility group will address cross-cutting issues that are also of relevance for the other working groups.
