On December 16th (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.

It will represent a great opportunity to explore the lessons learnt and the actions implemented at local level thanks to the interregional exchange among the 8 project 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).

Moreover, during the event participants will have the chance to actively discuss the 4 best solutions implemented by project partners through the organization of 4 parallel in-depth sessions:

  1. Bike Sharing - This session will focus on the do’s and don’ts of bike sharing systems, which have become very popular in many European cities.
  2. Parklets - The repurposing of on-street parking is gaining attention in many cities: it’s time to give space back to the people!
  3. Pedestrian areas - Residents and visitors like to spend their time (and money) in attractive urban areas. Very often these areas are for pedestrians only!
  4. Monitoring Retail and Mobility - Motorists are the best customers: true or false? This is a hot issue in many cities but only when you measure it you know something about it
