Although for many years the growth of many cities has given minimal importance to the biodiversity that surrounds them, today, as a result of the consensus created around the SDGs, biodiversity is a fundamental element in the definition of urban growth policies.
The materialization of this consensus faces enormous challenges that go beyond the purely infrastructural, and appeal to the need to understand the territory as a space that is in constant interrelation and interaction. A space where the urban can help conserve and enhance biodiversity and, conversely, biodiversity can improve the quality of life of people living in cities

On 2 February the INDIMO and the SPROUT project will hold a joint webinar titled: Planning for a more inclusive urban mobility, addressing urban mobility transition by making use of inclusive digital mobility tools.
The webinar will bring both projects together to share their research results and explore synergies and possibilities on how the SPROUT pilot cities can make use of the INDIMO tools. The webinar will discuss the pilot use cases of Emilia-Romagna (INDIMO) and Valencia (SPROUT), both based on the installation of e-lockers, and see how they can benefit from each other by analyzing the key stakeholders involved, challenges, barriers, drivers, benefits, differences, and commonalities.
The webinar will be also an opportunity to analyze how the INDIMO policy evaluation tool can be implemented and tested by the SPROUT cities, in this case Valencia, to formulate a more inclusive policy response that makes its e-locker an inclusive urban mobility solution.
