The project has now in December reached its end and the planned Final Conference the 26th of November was, due to the insecure situation in Brussels at the time, transformed into a webinar. Over 37 sites across Europe, and about 60 participants, were connected and listened and discussed the results from the project. At the same time we managed to save quite an amount of CO2, almost 5,200 kilos!
During the first year of the project, we mapped the current status of the Scan-Med Corridor and also finalised the analysis of the effectiveness and the transferability of transport measures across countries along the corridor. This, together with the best practice cases carried out in the project, has resulted in about 130 concrete measures supporting greening of transport.
After more than two years' of work, we hope that the results we deliver can provide valuable input to the appointed European coordinators' work in developing the Core Network Corridors in Europe.
The main deliverables from SWIFTLY Green are a generic Green Corridor Development Plan and the Green Corridor Portal. The Green Corridor Portal is a web portal that combines three tools that, in short, aims at visualising measures and assessing performance. The Green Corridor Development Plan is a document promoting ideas and concrete examples as a motivation and tool for mainly the European Coordinators to further include greening in the Work Plans for the development of the Core Network Corridors.
Concrete and appropriate measures are presented to make the transport system more sustainable and, by that, meeting ambitious European targets on e.g. reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHB) emissions, air pollutants and noise pollution.
One of our recommendations to the coordinators, provided in the Green Corridor Development Plan, is to introduce the Portal and the tools and use them in their practical work to choose, assess and propose measures for greening of future transport systems.
By that we would like thank all stakeholders across Europe that has participated in the work during the past years and wish you all:
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
