Our project partner Pferdemarktquartier, as one of nine initiatives, got awarded yesterday for their commitment in rural areas by Germany’s Federal Minister of Environment. No surprise – their work on ride-sharing was one of the aspects that did the trick…
As has been described before, ride-sharing in our Swedish communities hasn’t really kicked off so far.
But we are far from giving up yet – an inspirational meeting is planned till the end of August, when five different Swedish villages with the same ride-sharing system will gather and exchange ideas, learn from good examples, plan upcoming promotion activities and meet other enthusiastic people that want to change travelling patterns into a more sustainable direction.
If you know German: watch this interesting program on how to be mobile without using your own car.
What a combination for our German friends, donuts and ride-sharing! The ride-sharing company Flinc has an offer for their German users, check it out.
Going back and forth to work doesn’t necessarily mean just wasting your time. In France, some are learning English on their daily commute. What could you do while ride-sharing?
Why wait for your community to get a ride-sharing project? If you live in Sweden, you can already use this free tool. It has been around for a while, but now also enables you to create (or join) groups. See more details at skjutsgruppen.nu
A lot of people agree that ride-sharing is a great idea, but how come it’s so difficult to get most people started?… Any ideas?
