16 May 2023 - 17 May 2023

Registration closed.
If you are interested to attend the event, please email us and we will look in to the possibilities. Note that this event is by invitation only.

Learning from local needs to tackle critical issues of urban mobility transitions

While providing an attractive narrative for urban mobility transition, 15-minute City concepts need to be specified further when focusing on implementation and adaptation in different contexts. Building on the experience and practice of Romanian cities taking part in the EU Cities Mission “Bucharest – District 2, Cluj-Napoca and Suceava”, we invite participants from policy, research, business and civil society to discuss local challenges and critical issues for 15-minute City approaches. We connect this AGORA event with the meeting of projects in the ERA-Net Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) and embed it in a framework programme offering attractive opportunities for engaging and networking around topics of urban mobility transition. Through the AGORA Dialogue, we want to start collaborating and co-creating on positions from policy and science towards proximity-oriented concepts and take these further in a position paper within the frame of the Driving Urban Transitions Partnership (DUT).

Feel free to sign up for the workshop! We are looking forward to taking it further together with you!
