Space consumption and mobility

April 9th, 2019|News|

In recent years when urban population and urban functions are expanding, the need for space has increased. Because transportation is one of fundamental elements in a territory and economic and social activities it is important to address it comprehensively – whether we are thinking about walking, cycling, public transportation, personal cars, water taxis, air transport, shared economies and similar. Sometimes it brings positive effects, sometimes negative. We would like to emphasize a comprehensive understanding of traffic and mobility.

Because activities of project SMILE are focused on understanding and planning mobility in urban and rural areas of ADRION region, we will post some articles that might prove complementary to the common thread of SMILE. Materials can be used by project partners as well, in order to enhance knowledge gained throughout project activities.

Articles are reproduced by various media and authors, all stated within the articles themselves. They reflect views of authors and not those of European Union or Interreg ADRION programme.
