The Center of Regional Economy, Transport and Tourism (CERTeT) is organizing the Conference “On the Road to Sustainable Mobility: Where Are We Going?” to take place on 30 June 2011, Milan, Italy at Università Bocconi, Aula Magna via Gobbi 5, Milan, Italy.
This is the final conference of the EU Alpine Space Project CO2NeuTrAlp – CO2-Neutral Transport for the Alpine Space. CO2NeuTrAlp addresses the issue of sustainable mobility, taking into account the environmental preservation as well as the need of enhancing the competitiveness of local economy. In the EU27, the transport sector accounts for about 25.5% of total CO2 emissions. Greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions have significantly increased in the last few years across Europe, and no change in this trend is foreseen. With these premises, boosting the development of innovative and environmental-friendly solutions is necessary. Private cars alone are responsible for around 12% CO2 emissions and they remains fundamental for passengers mobility, especially to get to remote destinations in mountain regions. As a consequence, great attention has to be put on the development of targeted measures and innovative services able to design seamless concepts for sustainable mobility matching user needs and fulfilling the co-modality principle. Moreover, the technological development of clean and efficient power train systems based on alternative fuels and renewable resources is desirable. The conference is intended to provide wide dissemination of the results from the 13 pilot activities carried out by the 15 partners from five Alpine countries (France, Italy, Slovenia, Austria and Germany), in order to promote their replication. The discussion will also try to sketch a vision for local mobility, with specific attention to the Alpine Space area, and to merge the findings from the project in a shared pattern of guidelines for CO2 neutral mobility, as an effective tool to be adopted by decision makers and stakeholders. Moreover, the relationships between future mobility and territorial characteristics and endowment will be analyzed, in terms of environmental and socioeconomic impacts, as well as exploring the potential of natural resources and renewable energies.
