Our challenge

The challenge is to find innovative, creative and at the same time feasible solutions to realize sustainable mobility connections and enhance the biodiversity of the urban ecosystem.

In the city of Trento, an area in which the natural and anthropic environment contrast and merge, a new and exciting phase of change is opening up in the area of mobility. Within this framework, it is necessary to support people in overcoming geographical, orographic differences, addressing environmental, social and economic objectives.
