Despite COVID-19 constraints being reduced or lifted, unprecedented changes in mobility attitudes, and severe impacts on the transport sector have been caused. Tourist destinations, for example, were highly affected not only by the restrictions but also by a massive behavioural change, leading to consider all collective means of transport, including ride-sharing services, "less safe" than in the pre-COVID-19 situation.
How have tourist destinations coped with COVID-19 challenges on mobility? Is the gap between the level of public transport usage before and after COVID-19 still high for tourist areas? What are the possible approaches and the key pathways for achieving a long-term strategy for sustainable mobility?
Our partners from the CIVITAS Destinations Project invite you to join this free 60-minute webinar on 9th December at 15:00 CET that will deep dive into the experiences of six European very popular touristic islands, analysed in the booklet “Back to Sustainable mobility in times of COVID-19.
Strategies from the touristic destinations and islands” that will be presented by the main editor, Andrea Lorenzini, from MemEx. A specific focus on the tourism sector recovery will also be introduced by Ulf Sonntag who will take a special look at the German market and explore how the COVID pandemic is changing behaviour and attitudes of the German holiday travellers. How happy are they to fly again to their holiday destinations and to what extent do they plan to move and behave more sustainably at the destination?
