ABOUT LOW-CARB:

Public transport in functional urban areas has a high impact potential for reaching the EU’s White Paper goals to cut transport emissions by 60 percent by 2050 and to halve the use of conventionally fuelled cars in urban transport by 2030.  The LOW-CARB project aims to enhance capacities for integrated low-carbon mobility planning for functional urban areas by tackling burning issues such as integrated coordination, institutional cooperation and action plan implementation including joint financing and public investments in low-carbon mobility systems in times of austerity. 

FORESEEN RESULTS:

LOW-CARB’s strategies, action plans, tools and pilot actions will reduce CO2 emissions by almost 60 000 tons by 2020. Strategies and pilot actions will reflect main challenges and new trends such as open data based mobility planning, integrated mobility platforms or implementation of low-carbon technologies in pilot actions, including an electric public transport feeder service or solar-powered e-bike charging stations to link public transport and shared mobility.

Parma Shows off its Multimodal Success 

After a multi-modal journey, LOW-CARB partners were hosted by TEP, the public transport company that serves Parma and its province during Dec. 13-14. The agenda, which kicked-off with an interview and signing ceremony for the LOW-CARB Declaration, hosted 'working sessions' on the project’s upcoming SUMP Competence Center and LOW-CARB training series (see ‘ACTIVITIES’ below) while the project’s communications arm, led by the Regional Environmental Center braced the team for local outreach. Project planners parsed the status of and challenges to realising city SUMPs in the project’s cities and their involvement of stakeholders, and a site visit aptly illustrated our end-goal: multi-modal connectivity with peri-urban areas.
