On December 16th, 2020 (9.00 - 12.30 CET) the Interreg Europe project RESOLVE will organise a final online conference to present the results achieved over the last 4 years of project's lifetime.

The RESOLVE project innovatively addresses two urgent challenges in European cities: the declining retail sector and the increasing need to reduce CO2. The potential is considerable: up to 64% of shopping related trips in EU are made by car and almost 100% of goods are transported by motorized vehicle. In the Netherlands alone, retail accounts for 7.2 billion car-kms every year: this equals 1.08 billion kg CO2 per year! And 34% of these trips are shorter than 5 km!

Unfortunately different stakeholders often hold opposing views. For retailers the car is often seen as the panacea. Policy makers must urgently cut carbon. Moreover, retail and mobility are still separate policy fields, with little attention to their interaction.

This final conference will be an opportunity to explore experiences and lessons learnt thanks to the interregional exchange among 8 partners: City of Roermond (NL), Erasmus Centre for Urban, Port and Transport Economics BV (NL), Municipality of Reggio Emilia (IT), Transport for Greater Manchester (UK), Municipality of Maribor (SI), Kronoberg County Administration Board (SE), Almada City Council (PT), City of Warsaw (PL), Moravian-Silesian Region (CZ).

Join us to find out the best solutions implemented by project partners, in particular:

  1. Parklets

  3. Bike sharing
  4. Monitoring Retail and Mobility
