Abstract

Sustainable development is one of the great challenges for the future of cities. The public authorities have the role of accompanying cities towards sustainable development and should promote territorial policies that guarantee both economic growth and environmental protection. In this way, they assume a central role in the glo-cal process from global goals and local development. Calabria, as regional public authority, through the Regional Transport Plan, has defined the transport and logistics policy including urban areas and indicating interventions to go towards sustainability. These include city logistics, limited traffic zone and other measures. The interventions aim to contain polluting emissions and transport costs, to promote safe mobility and to improve accessibility. The experimental process has involved citizens, researchers and local authorities in an integrated approach also aimed at linking different roles. The example of Calabria provides information to technicians and policy-makers of general application in all other European regions.
