New open call: Sustainable accessibility for the whole of Sweden

Friday, September 30, 2022

Explore, develop and test solutions that contribute to climate-smart, sustainable travel and transport habits in the areas between city and countryside. In this new open call, you can apply for financial support for projects that address exactly this. The open call aims to promote cooperation between different actors in the mobility sector and the municipalities, where the change is to take place. The deadline for applications is October 20!

We are looking for solutions that make it easier for people and organizations to make climate-smart and healthy choices for different types of mobility needs: for example to and from work, school or leisure activities or for collecting e-commerce purchases. We are also looking for new or developed methods for, for example, community planning, spatial planning and architecture. The methods should aim to streamline transport and mobility that promote more sustainable choices.

The common denominator of the solutions is that they increase the knowledge, motivation or conditions of individuals and organizations to address attitudes and behaviors that promote sustainable travel and transport patterns. They must also contribute to the global sustainability goals of Agenda 2030 as well as the national climate, transport and food policy goals, which presupposes change and adjustment. In total, the open call covers approximately SEK 10 million over 2022 and 2023.

Various actors who work for more sustainable mobility can apply for project funding, but the requirement is that each project must have at least two project partners, of which at least one of these must be one of the 23 municipalities that are part of the Viable Cities initiative Climate-neutral cities 2030 and which thereby can demonstrate strong and long-term ambitions in their climate change work.

The deadline for applications is October 20, at 2 p.m., so act quickly!
