Aspects of social innovation promoting sustainability in the mobility sector


  • Viktória Angyal University of Sopron



social innovation, mobility, sustainability


The current economic environment is being significantly shaped by long-standing and emerging crises, which pose new challenges for the mobility sector that require a new approach and a new way of thinking. This report provides an insight into the role that social innovation can play in promoting the sustainability of mobility through the activities of an existing social initiative based organisation, Community Creates Mobility. The methodologies used in this paper are literature review and content analysis.
