ERRIN's Transport Working Group is organising a workshop for the European Week of Regions and Cities on the role of regions and urban nodes in the European Year of Rail. Arnhem-Nijmegen region, Ile-de-France, the metropolitan region of FrankfurtRheinMain and the Regional Council of Southwest Finland will take part in the workshop.
Regions and Urban Nodes provide a major contribution to the European ambitions towards more international passenger transport by train. This session will explore the joint challenges and solutions at local and European level.
Unless action is taken, transport risks becoming an even larger source of greenhouse gas emissions, jeopardising the EU’s ability to meet its overall objectives set out in the Green Deal. Regions and urban nodes tackle this challenge by facilitating more long and short-distance train travel, especially during this European Year of Rail. This workshop will discuss best practices on stronger links between regional urbanisation and (inter)national transport, and potential EU support actions and policies.
Pre-registration for the EWRC workshop is now open here.
