In the 2050 Long-Term Strategy and European Green Deal, the European Commission calls for a climate neutral Europe by 2050 and shows how Europe can achieve climate neutrality by investing in realistic technological solutions, empowering citizens and aligning actions in key policy areas. Tackling the climate challenge requires a paradigm shift and the immediate implementation of measures, especially in the most polutted areas and in the most urgent sectors. This certainly includes transport, where sustainable mobility must be a priority. There is a need to move beyond the past silo approaches and establish a coordinated approach by decision-makers at all territorial levels, while ensuring greater policy coherence, better governance and funding. Effective governance models need to be developed that coordinate different policies, integrate sustainable mobility measures into strategic documents at different territorial levels, and ensure the involvement of different policies, sectors and levels of government. Effective governance also requires the involvement of citizens and stakeholders to tailor policies to their needs and contribute to changing behavioural patterns. To support Slovenia's efforts in achieving climate goals, the project aims to 1) strengthen integrated planning along transport corridors in Slovenia and 2) identify station areas/nodes that should be developed as important transport, service and settlement areas with quality living conditions in terms of their existing amenities, need for additional urban development and efficiency of public transport. In addition, 3) a set of possible measures for sustainable mobility development will be presented, including proposals for improving public passenger transport. New solutions will be sought that 4) reduce mobility needs and strengthen active forms of mobility, 5) integrate spatial and transport planning, and 6) explore different management, planning and technology solutions to strengthen sustainable mobility on the corridor and in connecting its hinterland to the transport corridor/individual station area. To achieve the set goal, we will: - Formulate the concept of transit-oriented development in Slovenia and adjacent station areas; - formulate a proposal for a polycentric system of station areas as sources and sinks of daily mobility; - explore the station area concept as a model for a more sustainable way of settlement, a low-carbon society, high quality of life, active forms of mobility...; - develop a prototype for the design of an advanced MaaS concept that incorporates private vehicles in a modern and data-driven way, alongside public transport and active mobility and new mobility services; - develop guidelines for linking transport and spatial planning at the local level; - develop regionally specific expert bases for the inclusion of transit-oriented development in planning documents at regional level; - propose measures to strengthen local public transport on the corridors and to better connect hinterland areas to transport corridors; - to study good practices from abroad for a more sustainable settlement model (in connection with the corridors) and a more efficient organization of public passenger transport and active forms of mobility, and to examine the possibilities for their introduction in Slovenia, including in the area of effective governance, public involvement, gender-specific mobility habits, behavioural changes, financial mechanisms and the impact of COVID -19 on spatial and transport planning. The project will provide a comprehensive overview of the situation that will enable long-term and data-based decision-making, monitoring and evaluation, and the involvement of decision-makers and stakeholders in the process.
