Premises of the Auvergne-Rhone-Alps Region

From the metropolitan areas such as Munich, via the Austrian Tyrol mountains, the rural areas of southern Ljubljana and the Italian mountains of Belluno, the Alps constitute an exceptional natural environment with a wide diversity of populations and economical activities. Their geographical location, on a major axis of flow linking Northern and Eastern Europe to the Mediterranean sea, makes it an “active link” of the European territorial dynamism.

Climate change, pollution peaks, traffic jams, public health issues… This dynamism and attractiveness are strained. Urban sprawl and the preferred residential development generate car dependence for households living outside urban cores where few alternatives are available. The average size of agglomerations, the relative isolation of some of them from structuring transport networks, and isolated low density territories favor mobility behaviors towards the individual car.

Although aware of these challenges, it is clear that local authorities are still lacking of tools to confront them and develop alternatives to the individual use of the car.

Selected during the second call for projects proposals of the INTERREG Alpine Space program 2014-2020, the ASTUS project (Alpine Smart Transport and Urbanism Strategies) will deal with this issue at the Alpine scale. With this in mind, it will accompany a sample of seventeen pilot territories in five countries to identify levers to overcome the “all-car” model and to equip communities to propose virtuous alternatives in environmental terms.

Lead partner of ASTUS project, the Auvergne-Rhone-Alps Region invite you to participate to the launching conference of the project organized on Wednesday 22th of February at the premises of the Region.

Inscriptions are open at
