EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management* - has released its July 2016 e-update on the topic of Mobility Management for New Residents. The theme is described as follows:

When people move to a new city or neighbourhood, this is an ideal time to reconsider old travel habits and try out more sustainable modes. If these are immigrants with a different cultural background, they often have different needs for information and education than newcomers from the same or neighbouring countries.

In this e-update we will present several projects and studies that have looked into the mobility management options for such new residents, both native and non-native.

An upcoming webinar will explore the tool, the policies you can assess, and the outputs.
