|GP: STREAM - Sustainable tourism and recreation as an opportunity to promote alternative mobility - Regional|
STREAM aims at promoting more energy efficient transport behaviour through the development of new transport solutions and well targeted campaigns. The focus is on traffic related to "soft" tourism and recreation, also using these sectors of transportation demand as an opportunity for awareness raising about sustainable mobility in general. If you come to enjoy a natural environment, why not use also more "natural" means to travel?
In 7 European countries, local projects will be carried out. 3 types of destinations are covered: "green corridors", nature recreation and coastal recreation. A wide range of sustainable mobility solutions will be applied and promoted: information services on sustainable transport, development of soft mobility routes, tourist packages including sustainable mobility, clean vehicles and dedicated transport systems. The demonstrations are also an input for broader communication campaigns about the concept.
The project will result in: creation of awareness, demonstration of new solutions, concrete energy savings and important potentials for reproduction.
