Transdanube.Pearls wins the Austrian VCÖ Mobility Award 2018

Out of 321 submitted projects and concepts, Transdanube.Pearls has been one of the 12 exemplary projects that received a prize by the VCÖ Mobility Award. Transdanube.Pearls won in the category “Leisure and Tourism”. The award ceremony took place in Vienna on Tuesday, 18 September 2018.

The award is the largest mobility competition in Austria. This year’s motto of the VCÖ Mobility Award in Vienna was “Society. Change. Mobility”. This undermines the argument that not only an energy transition but also a transition in the transport sector is necessary in times of climate change. How such a transition in this sector can be successfully fostered and what this means in practice, has been presented during the award ceremony in Vienna on 18 September 2018. 

Monika Mörth, managing director of the project lead partner, the Environment Agency Austria, project leader Agnes Kurzweil and the initiators of the project, Robert Thaler and Veronika Holzer (Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism, Austria) received the prize.
