Women face higher risks and burdens than men in transport, due to unequal access to resources, education, job opportunities and entrenched socio-cultural norms. In the TInnGO project (2018 – 2021), Interactions is collaborating with local authorities, academic partners and transport consultants across Europe to develop a framework and mechanisms for a sustainable game change in European transport using the transformative strategy of gender-sensitive smart mobility.
Interactions was successful under a competitive call to receive funding from the SEAI Renewable Energy Research Development and Demonstration Programme 2017, to segment the energy consumer market in Ireland, with a view to accelerating the deployment of innovative energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
Almost half (44%) of all EU urban citizens live in ‘medium-sized’ city regions of less than 500,000. There is still a need to take into account the requirements of the authorities of small and medium sized cities and to address existing capacity shortfalls in order to maintain and normalise sustainable mobility in policy making and transport planning and to improve the quality of urban life.
There is a clear expectation from government across Europe that measures on reducing carbon, improving air quality, and enhancing health all have to be consistent with policies that support economic growth. Decision makers need to understand what works best to ensure that investment in Sustainable Urban Mobility measures represents good value for money.
Radio Nova was launched in September 2010, as a ‘special interest’ station with a local radio licence for the Greater Dublin Area aimed at 25-44-year-olds. The station describes its music mix as “guitar-based music” with a playlist consisting of songs by major Irish and international artists from Kings of Leon, The Killers, Coldplay and the Foo Fighters to Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, David Bowie and The Beatles.
