Rome2rio is presenting a paper at the upcoming La Rochelle Mobility Forum conference in La Rochelle, France.
(Actually, we’re not. Our friend Veronique Seel, who is the integrated mobility projects coordinator at EIGSI in La Rochelle and one of the conference organisers, is making the presentation our behalf, and Michael will appear briefly on video. It’s likely that Veronique will be wearing one of the much sought-after Rome2rio t-shirts while speaking on our behalf, thus lending her speech infinitely more street-cred.)

The forum is part of the www.climatlanticproject.eu project, aimed at fostering the development of strategies at regional and local levels to reduce the carbon footprint in the European Atlantic Area. Rome2rio is one of a number of organisations, including BlaBlaCar, Rail Europe, Eurolines, CanalTP, Le Group La Poste, ALFA-ACI and others who are supporting the initiative.
The February 2014 forum will focus on local and regional carbon footprint reduction as a mobility priority, and provide insights into existing and future trends in interregional mobility. Presentations will be made by commercial entities like Rome2rio, and regional bodies such as the Port of La Rochelle and the region of Pays de la Loire.
If you are interested in journey planning and “mobility” this is a great opportunity to meet and hear from a wide variety of experts in the front lines of European thinking on the topic. You can find the registration pages here.
