ACCESS2MOUNTAIN - International South East Europe Project
Sustainable tourist mobility is not well-developed in mountainous regions, especially in South-East Europe, as mountain regions are lacking sufficient sustainable transport facilities and facing major ecological impacts caused by individual vehicles.
Based on this fact, EU-, national strategies and INTERREG-outcomes a project was jointly developed under the leadership of the Environment Agency Austria. The proposed project aims at achieving 'Durable environmentally friendly tourism accessibility and connection to, between and in sensitive regions of the Alps and Carpathians, benefiting all (potential) users' through visualization of existing problems, awareness raising, development of common knowledge and creation of a monitoring base. With the long-term perspective of increasing sustainable tourist mobility, railway and multimodal connections will be improved and attractive offers created via pre-investment measures, pilot activities and investments.
12 partners from 8 countries build the partnership – thus a multi-level participation and broad coverage in both macro-regions and transfer of know-how is ensured.
