The event was organised by the project coordinator Rupprecht Consult. The 33 participants from nine cities and eight support organisations that form the project consortium, together with the EACI representative and the project Ambassador gathered for two days at the first CH4LLENGE consortium meeting. The aims of the meeting were to bring people together that will work as a team during the next three years, to highlight the essentials of CH4LLENGE in regard with the content, administrative and financial aspects and to encourage participants to start planning the upcoming activities within the project. At the end of the meeting, all project team members were inspired, full of ideas and ready to explore solutions to the four main sustainable urban mobility challenges, namely public participation, institutional cooperation, measure identification and monitoring and evaluation.
