On the 7th of May 2020, CIVITAS DESTINATIONS and NECSTouR organised a webinar about tourism and sustainable mobility, with the objective to discuss and provide participants with examples on “How to bridge the gap between tourism & transport” and “How to bring together the relevant stakeholders in tourism and transport”.

The “10 practical guidance recommendations to implement sustainable mobility solutions in touristic destinations” developed as part of CIVITAS DESTINATIONS were presented and explained. These recommendations can be followed by transport and tourism authorities and stakeholders aiming to improve tourism governance, customer journey (including product development) and to reduce CO2 emissions through smart and sustainable mobility.

The panellists introduced the latest developments and the role of tourism and mobility in EU policies, such as the Green Deal, and the results of the NIT study on market trends related to sustainable tourism behaviour in the destinations. In addition, three inspirational cases were discussed to provide examples of real cases implementation of the principles stated in the practical guidance:

  • The North German Smart and Sustainable Mobility and Tourism joint initiative
  • The Barcelona City Council Mobility and Tourism strategy
