Green and healthy jobs in transport: launching a new partnership under THE PEP
Reframing the role that transport plays with respect to society, environment and health, is an opportunity to be pursued by focusing on the positive influence of “green” transport in achieving better health, a cleaner environment, greater social cohesion, better quality of life and economic growth. The transport sector is indeed well placed to champion the new global agenda of green economy by exploring new options for job creations and economic development, and maximizing at the same time the potential gains for environment and health through innovative transport policies.
The Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme (THE PEP) is launching a new partnership to bring together interested Member States, experts and policy-makers from the transport, environment and health sectors and develop a set of actions and joint projects. The objective is to consolidate and disseminate the evidence from existing experiences and facilitate their consideration and uptake by national, subnational and local authorities.
Member States, experts and policy-makers who are interested in joining this partnership are welcome to contact THE PEP secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
