On the 20th of September 2018 queraum and the Mobility Scouts organised the National Networking Event in the “Planungswerkstatt Vienna”.
The main idea of the National Networking Event was to link up Mobility Scouts and relevant stakeholders at local level. According to the participatory approach of the project, Mobility Scouts were actively involved in the organisation and realization of the event. After a short introduction of the trainers, Mobility Scouts presented their local projects: Danube Island – towards a barrier-free recreation area, Safety in the traffic system and Mobility unlimited. Six local cooperation partners (head of the Seniors Office Vienna, representative of the Municipal Department 19 – architecture and urban design, expert of the Mobility Agency Vienna, Austrian Road Safety Board, head of the Local Agenda 21, project manager of Caritas – district work) formed an advisory group and provided feedback and practical tips. All in all it was a very appreciative exchange of ideas and Mobility Scouts, cooperation partners and the audience gained a lot from the discussions.
Celebrating the success also got its due: The head of the Seniors Office Vienna handed over certificates to the Mobility Scouts and thanked once again for the valuable contributions. During a social get-together with drinks and snacks, participants were invited to learn more about the local projects, participate in a “safety quiz” and show their balance and dexterity on a parcour.
In total 41 people participated in the event, which was much appreciated.
