CIVITAS is a network of cities for cities dedicated to cleaner and better transport in Europe and beyond. Since its launch by the European Commission in 2002, the CIVITAS initiative has tested and implemented over 800 measures and urban transport solutions as part of demonstration projects in more than 80 ´Living Lab´ cities Europe-wide.
In the framework of the Civitas DESTINATIONS project a mission of Chinese transport professionals is being organized to Funchal/Madeira (Portugal) & Las Palmas/Gran Canaria (Spain) between 4-8 November 2019.
In the DESTINATIONS project six European touristic sites, i.e. Funchal, Limassol, Rethymno, Elba, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Valletta, develop a set of innovative actions in order to implement sustainable mobility measures and actions offering intelligent sustainable transport solutions for tourists and residents. Through innovation and cooperation with major stakeholders these solutions aim to improve urban accessibility, cost effectiveness and integration of transport services and to reduce emissions and energy consumption. DESTINATIONS builds up an integrated approach to address mobility and tourism, testing balanced strategies to face the rising challenges of these two growing sectors and to achieve sustainable development and a better quality of life in touristic cities.
