On February 14th, the B2B center of School Center Velenje hosted the 15th Post New Year School Centre conference that was joined by partners from businesses as well as local, regional and state authorities. The conference provided the perfect opportunity to present the SMILE project to attendees, among which were several mayors and representatives from local municipalities, managers from local and regional companies and former and current ministers for education of the Republic of Slovenia.
Enhancing the capacity for integrated transport and mobility services is a current hot topic for representatives of local governments – municipalities are actively working on reducing local personal car transport by optimising local public transportation and implementing public bike sharing systems. The conference was an opportunity to exchange ideas, present good practices and network. The theme was also interesting for representatives of companies, especially for bigger corporations who are trying to include optimal practices into logistics of their employees’ commute.
