With great help from the Polish institute InnoBaltica, the SustainTrans team facilitated another successful workshop within the INTERCONNECT project in order to investigate what public transport stakeholders in the Pomorskie region think about current and future sustainable regional and cross border public transport. The workshop was held in the Pomeranian Technology and Science Park in Gdynia and mostly in the Polish language. English was translated to Polish, and vice versa when needed. The workshop was facilitated by Varvara Nikulina and introduced by the president of InnoBaltica Krzysztof Rudziński and then further explained by the project leader Wiktor Szydarowski.

The participants then let everyone know about the expectations of today’s workshop and burning issues about public transport. Henrik Ny then had a lecture about Strategic Sustainable Development in the public transport context.

Within a world café style with round table discussions facilitated by the local table leaders speaking both Polish and English, about 50 public stakeholders came up with ideas about a visioning statement for sustainable public transport, current pro’s and con’s with regards to sustainability principles, and finally how to get to the vision.
