30 April 2020 - Workshop - "Measuring what Matters to EU Citizens: Social Progress in the European regions" project
On April 30, 2020, a new workshop was held in the virtual environment as part of the project "Measuring what Matters to EU Citizens: Social Progress in the European regions", with the theme "Transport Shortage" ( Transport Poverty).
The shortage of transport is the lack of access to a range of employment opportunities and basic services of citizens in their daily lives, maintaining social ties and fulfilling social obligations. Mobility is the key to full participation in society and a meaningful life.
The Bucharest-Ilfov region is one of the ten case studies of the project, and the Bucharest-Ilfov Regional Development Agency is the point of contact. A representative of ADRBI made and delivered a presentation on a number of aspects of the organization and implications of transport in the Bucharest-Ilfov Region and how it influences social progress.
The project, launched by the European Commission, encourages regions to empirically test how the EU Social Progress Index (SPI) could be used to improve policy-making, especially for policies supported by cohesion policy. The aim is for this project to serve as a guide for European regions in the use of the EU-SPI, but also to gather recommendations for improving the next editions of the index.
