    Alpine valleys are fragile territories and require mobility systems that respond to the needs of inhabitants, businesses and tourists. The theme is the reconciliation of accessibility needs to the territory and internal mobility, with the protection of the environment and the landscape.

    Key elements are collective transport, infrastructures and services for soft mobility, innovative rental / sharing solutions, a tourism offer that enhances the new Soft & Smart mobility.

    Those elements were part of the workshop, where CESBA ALPS project aims and first results were presented. The partecipation of Lombardy Region - and Promoserio, an organization involved in the CESBA Local Committe in the Pilot Area of Valle Seriana, province of Bergamo - in the Workshop was so productive that the ITS Foundation has been invited and participated to the CESBA Local Committee Meeting held on 20th June.
