The EU Strategy for the Danube Region Annual Forum 2020

22 October 2020

The 9th EUSDR Annual Forum, jointly organised by the Republic of Croatia, the European Commission and the Danube Transnational Programme with the support of the Danube Strategy Point, will take place on 22nd October 2020.

We are at a crucial moment of the EU´s history. Never has cooperation been so crucial, because never before have challenges been so global. The experiences gained during the previous period will be helpful in moving forward even more united.

At this moment, the main issue which the participating states of the Danube Region Strategy are faced with are the following: minimization of the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare systems and citizens’ health along with the simultaneous restoration of economic and social activities.

There will be also a great and unique opportunity for promotion of deeper and wider cooperation between EUSDR EU-member states and candidate/potential candidate countries participating in the EUSDR with special focus on the fields of how to put the EUSDR Action Plan into practice

Before its official opening, the 7th Danube Participation Day – Youth Participation in the Danube Region event will be organised on 21st October 2020 as a side event.

Grüne Infrastruktur - von der Strategie zur regionalen Umsetzung

MaGICLandscapes Regional Final Event

Gemeinsam mit regionalen Vertreter*innen konnten im Rahmen des Projektes MaGICLandscapes in den vergangenen Jahren Konzepte und Maßnahmen für ein verantwortungsvolles Management von Grüner Infrastruktur erarbeitet sowie konkrete Handlungsfelder und -strategien in den Bezirken Hollabrunn und Horn identifiziert werden.

Im Fokus der Veranstaltung steht dabei die Veranschaulichung der Multifunktionalität der Grünen Infrastruktur (z.B. Klimaschutz & Anpassung an den Klimawandel, Gesundheit & Lebensqualität, Land- und Forstwirtschaft, Tourismus & Erholung, Schutz der Biodiversität, etc.) anhand konkreter Aktionspläne. Gemeinsam wurden dabei Werkzeuge und Strategien erarbeitet, um lebenswichtige Naturräume kosteneffizient und nachhaltig zu schützen und zu verbinden.

Anhand von Praxisbeispielen für die Leistungen der Grünen Infrastruktur und Konzepten für die Umsetzung eines solchen strategisch geplanten Netzwerkes natürlicher und naturnaher Flächen, zeigen ExpertInnen und AkteurInnen regionale Umsetzungsmöglichkeiten, Initiativen und Erfolgsmodelle:

Theresa Brandstetter - Unser Klima Retzer Land
DI Horst Leitner - Büro für Wildökologie und Forstwirtschaft
Bgm. Manfred Nigl - Gemeinde Retzbach
Janine Oettel, MSc & Dr. Silvio Schüler - Bundesforschungszentrum für Wald (BFW)
Roman Portisch, MSc - Landwirtschaftskammer Niederösterreich 
DI Thomas Rögner - Abteilung Wasserbau, Amt der NÖ Landesregierung

Mit der abschließenden Vorführung des Dokumentarkurzfilms „In Beziehung zur Natur sein“ von Lenka Ovčáčková, der Grüne Infrastruktur im Bereich des Nationalparks Thayatal-Podyjí und des westlichen Weinviertels und östlichen Waldviertels beleuchtet, möchten wir die Veranstaltung ausklingen lassen und zur gemeinsamen Umsetzung einladen.

Für etwaige Fragen und Anregungen stehen wir Ihnen jederzeit gerne zur Verfügung. Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Teilnahme.

This webinar and succeeding workshop provides good practice and knowledge transfer in sustainable urban mobility planning.  A large part of LOW-CARB's vision is to spread our strategies, tools, and innovations across central Europe.

  • mobility planning tools from the LOW-CARB project,
  • mobility and energy management measures in the town of Litoměřice
  • mobility and institutional plans in Czechia, and after a break,
  • an interactive workshop on preparing SUMPs for the scope of smaller cities and towns: identification of site-effective measures for small sustainable mobility plans.
    • Linking appropriate measures to strategic objectives 
    • The importance of strategic and specific participation 
    • Tools for choosing topics for effective measures (qualitative, quantitative)
    • Evaluation and elaboration of measures - methodology and transfer of good practice

The webinar is intended for representatives of cities, heads of transport and development departments, as well as urban mobility coordinators and planners.

SHAREPLACE Final Conference: 4th-6th November 2020

"Integrated mobility solutions to enhance regional transport"

As today’s mobility needs of citizens have become more composite, regions and cities are required to elaborate sustainable and inclusive approaches to address them. While traditional public transport represents the backbone of the mobility system, shared, flexible solutions and their integration in the network create new opportunities for territories with different densities. The INTERREG Central Europe SHAREPLACE Project has developed a comprehensive strategy based on stakeholders engagement, co-design of mobility solutions, open source based digitalisation and innovative business models in order to reshape transport networks in five pilot regions. New shared and flexible mobility solutions have been tested in Ulm – Germany, Bergamo and Crema, Italy, Osijek in Croatia and Zalaegerszeg in Hungary, and will be scaled up and replicated in order to become key elements of future transport networks better connecting cities and regions.

The SHAREPLACE final conference will present the experiences and lessons learned through the co-design, development and testing of innovative solutions, and discuss the future of integrated mobility under different perspectives: planning, governance, technology and market. Participants will have the chance to learn about the experiences and open source solutions developed within the project and their replicability in their mobility strategies and networks, and to actively join the debate on sustainable and inclusive solutions for integrated mobility.

The following topics will be covered by the programme:

  • Engaging stakeholders and co-designing mobility services to integrate and enhance existing networks
  • Delivering new shared and flexible mobility services in different urbanized environments
  • How open data allow cities and regions to move towards integrating services
  • Developing open source solutions for the digitalization of mobility services
  • Designing strategies and action plans for more inclusive, sustainable and demand responsive regional and local transport
  • Special session for developers: SHAREPLACE digital solutions based on Digitransit open source platform

Life After LOW-CARB: Final Conference

25 November 09:00 - 13:00

Leapfrog your way to a low carbon future by joining us at our all-informative final event on November 25th! 
LOW-CARB will present its major outputs and public resources including: tools, lessons learned, and pilot implemented over the past 3 years as an Interreg Central European project!

About the project:

LOW-CARB is a transnational project in Central Europe increasing the planning capacities of organisations and city governments to transition to low-carbon mobility. Its tackles burning issues of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning by introducing several new LOW CARBon pilot measures across Central Europe.

What the conference offers

  1.  Planning strategies, monitoring and evaluation tools, and action plans that were developed in the pilot actions, and thereafter specially adapted for wider audiences to use in their regions' transport and mobility contexts.
  2. A "bar camp" to discuss a range of topics from transferability of tools... to governance of functional urban areas and corporate mobility management... AND the opportunity to raise your own topics.
  3.  A panel discussion where experts give their outlook on Sustainable urban mobility planning in Central Europe’s functional urban areas after all that LOW-CARB has brought to the transition. 

The final conference will present the project’s innovations to empower others to join us in the transition to low-carbon cities. The conference agenda will be formalized and published here in due time.
