Passing the equator of 2022, many are taking time to reflect. The past months have been challenging, and we are now hopefully leaving behind the hardest times of the Covid-19 pandemic. As we enter what, for long, was being called “the new normal”, many of us are realising how old problems are still very much alive.
Take urban mobility as an example. It’s summer, everyone is moving, thirsty for holidays, for efficiency, for stimuli, finally able to travel for work, family or pleasure. But as travelling makes a come-back, so do congestion, pollution, inefficiency. Inevitably, we ask ourselves: are we doing things right? Can we learn ways to do better?
The answer is yes.
From designing cycling cities, to sustainable parking, to superblocks’ magic recipe to tackle mobility issues – EIT Urban Mobility Courses put learning at the centre of the (new) picture. To spread the news and reach more people like you, who want to make a positive impact in urban mobility, we’ve teamed up with a couple of sharp companies to organise a Summer Giveaway. Interested? Keep reading!
EIT Urban Mobility Courses launched under EIT Urban Mobility’s Academy division, and it is a European initiative aimed at ‘closing the knowledge gap’, making relevant, up-to-date, specialised e-courses on all aspects of urban mobility publicly available.
The e-courses’ registration is free and they vary in length—offering quick and efficient 1-hour lectures or spanning the learning phases over five weeks—and in topic, touching on cycling and active mobility, transport planning and logistics or gender influences in urban transport, among others. All of EIT Urban Mobility’s academic offer follows two focuses: innovation and digitalisation, with an emphasis on the use of big data for the optimisation of processes without forgetting the theory behind.
A Veloretti bike
Born in The Netherlands in 2013, Veloretti sells both electrical and regular bikes, all configurable and in a variety of shapes and colours. The bike that we will give away is a city, regular, non electric, non-configured bike. See total cost below.
A Plantui indoor garden
If you’ve always wanted to grow your own superfood, this is your chance. Made ethically in Finland, Plantui’s indoor gardens come with everything you need to start growing your plants indoors, with little space and the highest tech. The prize includes Plantui’s Smart Garden 6 along with nutrients and herbs to start cultivating. See total cost below.
Nordace’s Nelson smart travel backpack
Travel and in-town mobility might have slowed down during the past two years, but no way it is over for good. With room for up to a 15.6’’ computer, featuring hidden pockets and a USB charging port, it won’t matter whether you’re hopping on a train or jumping on your electric scooter to hit the office – this backpack will have you covered! See total cost below.
1. Go to urbanmobilitycourses.eu and pick the e-course that’s calling you the loudest.
2. Register to the e-course (it’s free!) and finish it before August 14th. For each finished e-course you will receive two points.*
3. Repost any of our giveaway announcement posts on LinkedIn. For each repost you share, you will receive one point. You can post from your personal or your company’s LinkedIn account, as long as the name of your company was stated in the e-course registration. The more finished e-courses, the more points.
4. Remember to make the post public – otherwise we won’t see it!
