Brussels, 27.05.2021 – Next Thursday, 3rd June 2021, FYCMA (Palace of Fairs and Congresses of Malaga), with the support of the Finnova Foundation, organises the professional webinar within the framework of the European Green Week 2021 #EUGreenWeek “S-MOVING Zero Emissions Smart and Sustainable Mobility Alliance” on the occasion of the World Environment Day (5th, June) to address sustainable mobility in urban centers.
The European Green Week 2021 #EUGreenWeek, organised by the Directorate General for the Environment of the European Commission, will take place from the 31th May to the 4th June 2021 with a defined cross-cutting topic: “Zero Pollution”. This annual event, which is an opportunity to debate European environmental policy, will feature online events in all member countries of the European Union.
“S-MOVING Zero Emissions Smart and Sustainable Mobility Alliance”, which aligns with up to five of the 17 SDG challenges of the United Nations, specifically 3, 7, 9, 11 and 13, has as its main objectives to promote the latest developments of mobility and intelligent, sustainable and efficient transport, provide a space to generate business, establish alliances promoting innovative ecosystems to promote new industries and advance disruptive changes in aspects such as infrastructure and energy, urban mobility, zero pollution or electrical transports.
Mobility is one of the human activities that generates the most environmental impact. On the one hand, it uses energy inefficiently and produces air and noise pollution; on the other, it occupies a large amount of land and the infrastructures on which it depends are the cause of the permanent transformation of the territory they occupy, modifying its entire environment. Coinciding with the European Year of the Railway, S-MOVING focuses on innovation and the application of new technologies in mobility and transport, which in turn has repercussions in the productive, business, social and environmental fields.
To face the challenge of sustainable and efficient mobility and transport, this webinar will have the participation of numerous experts, among which are Isabel García Muñoz, MEP member of the Transport and Tourism Commission, Alberto Moreno, CEO at T-Box Delivery & Solutions, Mariano Sydney Rubio, partner Urban Resilience SL, Daniel Serra, director of the EIT Urban Mobility, Raúl García Brink, technical coordinator of Economic Development, Energy Sovereignty, Climate and Knowledge of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, among others.
The event will pay special attention to how European NextGenerationUE funds can support companies in their transition towards sustainability thanks to the participation of experts in the achievement of the different funds offered by the European Union.
“S-MOVING Zero Emissions Smart and Sustainable Mobility Alliance” is the online precedent of the face-to-face event S-MOVING, Intelligent and Sustainable Mobility, a forum that will be held at the Malaga Trade Fair and Congress Center on the 29th and 30th September 2021 with all the necessary anti-COVID-19 security measures. This meeting, aligned with the achievement of zero carbon emissions and the fight against climate change, will feature different spaces in which different national and international both public and private actors will present their proposals and generate alliances focused on smart mobility and sustainable transport.
