Exchange with the Interreg Atlantic Programme on Sustainable Mobility Planning in La Rochelle, France
March 6th, 2014
Pamela Mühlmann from ICLEI participated in CLIMATLANTIC’s 2nd Forum for Interregional Mobility - with a focus on local and regional actions for carbon footprint reduction - in La Rochelle, France on February 20-21, 2014.
This conference is part of a series of events initiated and organised by the European CLIMATLANTIC Project. The CLIMATLANTIC Project seeks to develop strategies towards the reduction of the carbon footprint in the Atlantic area at a regional and local level. The project focuses on four essential issues: mobility, energy, territorial management and social behaviour and is developing concrete strategies that are validated through pilot actions. The project is funded by the by the Interreg Atlantic Programme.
The conference was an excellent opportunity to more closely link the activities of two Interreg programmes together and to exchange views on the common topic of CO2 reduction. ICLEI presented its work in terms of climate and mobility, especially referring to all current projects such as CARE-North plus. During various exchange opportunities, the integrated and innovative approach of both projects CLIMATLANTIC and CARE-North plus with regard to future mobility planning was discussed. For example, both of the projects work with future development scenarios. Further information on the CLIMATLANTIC project can be found under: http://www.climatlanticproject.eu/eng/index.php
