AIVP - The worldwide network of port cities invites you to their webinar

Sustainable mobility in Port Cities: Challenges and Solutions - Experiences from CIVITAS PORTIS

About this webinar

Mobility is one of the unavoidable challenges of any port city. It is also - sustainable mobility - one of the objectives that AIVP is pushing to achieve by 2030. What is sustainable mobility? How can traffic flow? We will answer these questions during the next webinar through the examples of Trieste (Italy) and Antwerp (Belgium).

The port and its inherent goods flows, often via polluting trucks, can be the source of conflicts with other users sharing the road, often causing considerable congestion. Clearly, to realistically aim at reducing polluting emissions, green mobility is a crucial sector. 

New technological tools related to the concepts of "smart ports" and "smart city", based on real time data, allow more efficient coordination and planning of traffic for both port and urban authorities. At the same time, on a different scale, commuting in port cities is also changing. The pandemic has emphasized even more the role of cycling in urban settings, framed in a multimodal mobility policy. A correct combination of these two key ideas, efficient use of traffic data and cycling, can greatly improve the life of port city citizens and reduce port nuisances.

In this webinar, we will learn about the experiences developed during the EU funded Civitas Portis project. More concretely, we will have a debate with representatives from the port authorities and municipalities of two European port cities, Antwerp and Trieste. We will see what are the lessons learned from this project and their perspectives for the future.
