latform to Form Opinions Related to Mobility
Start date: Aug 31, 2013,

PLATFORM aims at integrating social sustainability into infrastructure planning decision making, considering community needs, equitable accessibility and polycentric design that enhances social participation. As EU policies underline, social impacts and interests of local authorities and civil society affected by a common project should be taken into account to prevent conflicts. In this policy framework, PLATFORM fits between a strategic development and the exploration, as the awareness needs to be aroused and new methodologies and tools developed, to pursue a bottom-up driven approach. The main output will be a transnational awareness platform, developed and presented in a final meeting and exhibition (ME/EX) showing in an inclusive and interactive way project results and developed tools, i.e. didactic tools, seminars/webinars and proposals for the future, also available in a support documentation. The platform will therefore have a physical product and be a discussion virtual place. Achievements: The preparation phase lead to the definitive version of the Application Form, which represents the project guidance, in terms of activities, budget and timetable. PLATFORM established the Project Steering Committee and produced documents to support the partnership in its technical and financial management and in project monitoring and evaluation. The project website (www.platformproject.eu) has been implemented, together with Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, reachable through the website. To collect data to analyse previous Alpine Space Projects achievements a dedicated matrix has been produced a plan on how to address relevant target groups and stakeholders has been set up. To implement the Awareness Platform, a set of tools have been identified, ranging from didactic tools to webinars and seminars, each addressed to a specific target group, but all aimed at conveying the relevance of social sustainability in the field of transport and mobility. The project partners presented the results of the in-depth analysis of previous Alpine Space projects in Lyon (FR) in February 2014.
