The year 2021 has been declared the European Year of rail with the main goal of boosting rail as a sustainable, innovative, interconnected and intermodal, safe and affordable mode of transport in line with the objectives set out in the European Green Deal and the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.
The European Union Agency for Railways (ERA) is celebrating the European Year of Rail with a range of activities, including a series of online webinars that address the most pressing issue of transport today, the launch of the European Rail Safety Climate Survey (ERA-SCS) and – if circumstance allow – stakeholder conferences on railway safety and the future of ERTMS by the end of the year.
Many other events and activities can be found on the official EYR 2021 website with more information on how to get engaged.
Why not join the campaign and promote the greenest mode of transport to the rest of Europe?!
