The Catalan Mobility Conference took place on 7 June and was attended by some 350 people at the Els Costals Auditorium in Castellbisbal to hear the Councillor for Regional Affairs and Sustainability of the Regional Government of Catalonia, Josep Rull, among others. This was the 13th such conference and was organised, as it is every year, by the AMTU to examine the role played by council authorities in mobility and improving it.
Under the title of ‘The Future of Public Transport in Catalonia’, Councillor Rull gave the conference’s opening address, speaking about the need for mobility to respect the environment, among other things. According to Josep Rull, “we have a very important problem with air pollution and climate change” at the moment and public transport forms part of the solution to these two problems.
The councillor’s speech came just after the opening talks, which were led by the AMTU Chairman, Jordi Xena, and the Mayor of Castellbisbal, Joan Playà.
Moventis was represented by a sizeable delegation led by Josep Maria Martí (Managing Director) and Joan Giménez (General Manager).
To tackle the effects of air pollution and reduce them, the AMTU Chairman encouraged everyone attending to take part in a new session of the Catalan Mobility Conference that will also take place in Castellbisbal, in October.
