Micro-mobility: the next big thing?, Ljubljana - Main contents
The conference will focus on the new transport developments of micro-mobility, such as electric scooters, bikes, mopeds, and drones. Together with representatives of city authorities and micro-mobility companies the conference aims to be the first large-scale event to provide a platform to discuss the challenges and opportunities micro-mobility presents for people moving in urban areas and also for deliveries.
Dedicated workshops will offer the possibility for participants to discuss the current situation and how to plan for the future. The conference will conclude a summary and voting on findings from the workshops to serve as input to the new European Commission.
The European Commission is the executive body of the EU and runs its day-to-day business. It is made up of the College of Commissioners, 27 European Commissioners, one for each member state, who are each responsible for one or several policy areas. In addition, the 'Commission' also refers to the entire administrative body that supports the Commissioners, consisting of the Directorates-General and the Services.
The European Commission is the sole EU body capable of proposing new legislation. The Commission also performs an oversight function, monitoring whether European legislation is properly implemented in the member states. In the event of non-compliance, the Commission can coerce a member state to comply by starting a legal procedure at the European Court of Justice.
