MAMBA Project Final Web Conference series 10 September

About event

Due to the latest disruptions caused by the spread of COVID-19, MAMBA project has decided to postpone the Final Conference until September 2020 and change its format into a three-part digital event.

We hope you will join us for the “No future for rural Europe? Breaking the vicious circle with successful mobility and accessibility ideas” conference, which we will hold as a series of sessions on the 3, 10 and 17 September 2020, 10:00-11:30 CET.

Session #2: Breaking the vicious circle with successful mobility and accessibility solutions – Stories from MAMBA and beyond
10 September, 10:00 CET (click to register)

The second session will bring to your attention several success stories from the area of rural mobility, presented by MAMBA and similar projects and initiatives. Four inspiring stories from different parts of Europe will showcase how they succeeded in making their region a better place. The session will also feature the launch of MAMBA’s brand new publication, “Everybody’s Guide to Collaborative Mobility and Accessibility Solutions in Rural Areas”. If you are a committed citizen or represent an NGO or a local public authority and want to tackle the mobility challenges in your region, then this manual is made for you. Join our web conference for the full story.

About the project

“Almost two years ago the bus stopped driving in our area, and since then there are difficulties to get to the county centre.” This quote belongs to a local of the Mazsalaca County, in Latvia, but it might as well belong to any other resident living in one of Europe’s remote, rural areas.

With decreasing and ageing populations in many rural areas in the Baltic Sea Region, it is becoming increasingly challenging to keep up public transport and other services that depend on mobility, such as home care or home deliveries. This reduced accessibility of services impacts the life quality of people living outside urban centres. For the past three years, MAMBA project has been trying to meet this challenge by introducing Rural Mobility Solutions in areas that have been affected by the lack of public transport opportunities.

During its final web conference series, MAMBA will present the results of the past three years, while also initiating a discussion about the different aspects of rural mobility across Europe, and discussing innovative solutions and successful mobility ideas.
