Decarbonising mobility in urban nodes: Governance and policy challenges

Date: 12.10.21

The online event “Decarbonising mobility in urban nodes: Governance and policy challenges” is part of a series of workshops aimed at discussing common challenges of cities located on the corridors and nodes of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).

The event brought together representatives of the cities of Malmö, Hamburg and Copenhagen to share experiences and discuss how to reconcile growing mobility needs in inter-urban areas with local policies aiming at reducing motorised traffic.

The second part of the event focused on the implications of the EU decarbonisation agenda for TEN-T and urban nodes policies, with representatives of the European Commission and key stakeholder organisations.
