GreenSAM (Green Silver Age Mobility)

Brief Summary

The GreenSAM project focused on the development of age-friendly green mobility solutions based on the opinions and needs of elderly people. This was done thanks to participatory tools used in six cities across the Baltic Sea region.

GreenSAM (Green Silver Age Mobility) is rooted in the challenge that senior citizens often remain reluctant towards the green urban mobility solutions that are introduced in many cities in the Baltic Sea Region – such as bike-sharing offers or public transport systems. This challenge becomes even more important in the context of ageing societies throughout Europe.
