New seminar on shared services in urban mobility!

Zero-carbon urban mobility
23 May 2024
Clock 11 : 00 - 14 : 00 CEST
Location In person | Valmiera, Latvia
By Project SPOTLOG

Vidzeme Planning Region brings the SPOTLOG topic, Green and Socially Responsible Urban Logistics Innovations, up to date and invites interested parties to apply for a seminar on sharing solutions in the delivery of goods.

On 23 May, a seminar on existing and possible shared services in urban mobility will be held in Valmiera, bringing together local government specialists, as well as other interested parties who work with the development of micromobility, logistics and innovative delivery services. This is the second stakeholder meeting organized in Vidzeme this year; the measures are initiated by the Vidzeme planning region, actualizing the development of sustainable, environmentally friendly logistics services in the context of last-mile delivery services in both cities and rural areas.

For local government specialists, the above-mentioned highlights are particularly important, as the issues are closely related to transport decarbonization processes and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, where local governments play an important role and are given great responsibility in achieving the common goal. Each municipality can adapt initiatives and approaches according to local needs and opportunities, developing both infrastructure and working on improvements to the regulatory framework, educating the public and solving issues together with other representatives of the industry, incl. the private sector, citizens, representatives of the scientific sector, etc. system members. Particularly interesting are solutions that solve several challenges at the same time - for example, they both reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and also have a positive impact on local home manufacturers and their business, for example, by installing thermal packaging machines, which are becoming more and more popular in Latvia.

As part of the program of the event, the participants of the seminar will get acquainted with various initiatives and experience of entrepreneurs, organizing the so-called last mile delivery services, as well as get an overview of the situation in the transport sector, especially in mobility issues both in urban areas, being aware of the extent of the problem in rural areas as well.

The co-involvement of society itself in the provision of services, becoming a participant in the supply of goods and products, is increasingly being considered. Representatives of Riga Technical University and SIA BOLT Drive, as well as the founders of the company and movement izipizi.lv, will reveal the experience they have gained in the course of their activities.
