SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY IN EU RURAL AREAS

Who is the project aimed at?

 

Although the project will benefit people living in rural areas, the main target group are rural development agents working in municipalities, associations of municipalities, provinces and local action groups.

These professionals will benefit directly from the project’s training and will acquire new skills and tools for their daily tasks, enabling them to advise local decision-makers on how to improve mobility at local level.

Thus, local and regional authorities are also a target group of the project, where they will be involved through the partner’s collabarotation activities in the project validation activities and in the planned multiplier events.

The Erasmus+ project MobiRural develops a series of actions aimed at:
  • Promote efficient and sustainable rural mobility + the adoption of new mobility strategies and technologies in rural areas
  • Capitalise and promote the use of digital tools and new technologies for mobility in rural areas
  • Elaborate a framework with the basis of a European curriculum for rural mobility actors
  • Create a cooperation network for the promotion of rural mobility policies and initiatives

Why MobiRural?

Transport emissions have increased by 25% since 1990. In this respect, mobility policies have a decisive role to play in contributing to the commitments to reduce emissions, decarbonise and improve air quality in the EU.

Key for the climate

Providing more sustainable forms of mobility can also make an important contribution to mitigating climate change. However, policies have essentially focused on large urban centres, neglecting mobility between urban and rural areas and mobility within rural areas.

Another challenge for the rural world

Rural areas present specific challenges such as low population density (and rapid depopulation), long distances between cities, ageing populations, higher poverty rates and often poor connections to airports/railways/road nodes. Recent studies show that mobility is behind the high average CO2 emissions attributed to citizens in rural areas compared to urban residents. This comparison is not only unfair (based on lack of public transport and inadequate calculation methods), but also very dangerous for rural communities that may see public funding mechanisms based on green indicators give priority to other areas.
An adequate sustainable mobility scenario in rural areas will facilitate access to jobs, education or services and can make an important contribution to mitigating climate change and depopulation. Smart mobility strategies and technological tools will help rural communities to design and implement new solutions. Rural mobility can be a key component for other economic, social, tourism or environmental improvements by increasing the connectivity of rural areas. There is therefore an urgent need to act for more reliable and efficient mobility in Europe’s rural areas.

Rural development agents are key to transferring tools and knowledge on efficient and sustainable mobility to rural societies
