    The World Tourism Organization refers that sustainable tourism should take full account of its current and future economic, social, and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities. Based on these guidelines, the Alpine and Adriatic regions have implemented sustainable tourism strategies focused on showing their culture, landscapes, and histories. However, Covid-19, issues with air transport, and lack of public transport have increased tourism by private cars (more than 80 % of the modal split) thus contributing to the overall CO2 and noise emissions.
    Considering these major challenges for the Alpine and Adriatic regions, we have designed a solution to integrate sustainable mobility technologies; electric vehicles (EV) and e-bicycles focused on developing a 1. Comprehensive and reliable EV and bicycle charging infrastructure for tourist, citizens, public transport, and businesses, 2. Accessible electric bicycles, 3. Efficient use of renewable energy and grid stability, and 4. Digitalization of touristic routes and hospitality.
    The implementation requires community engagement and proactive approach towards creating a better understanding about all the pros of sustainable living by its leaders. Our aim is to reduce emissions from the transport (public and private), protect the environment, promote sustainable tourism, reduce transportation costs, increase the use of renewable energy, develop micro grids to stabilize the grid network, develop smart and digitalised tourism, and – more importantly – to create a better-quality life for people around tourism.
    Our project lays a foundation in the potential transformation of any major city and its rural areas’ tourism infrastructure. For instance, tourists who drive an EV will be welcome to visit the regions without concerns that their EVs will run out of battery allowing them to enjoy bicycle ride, a local meal, or a drink. Also, unpleasant noise and the discomfort of smelling pollutants would be reduced to near zero. Everyone in the region would benefit from better air in a better city.
    The short and mid-term goal of our EV charging infrastructure and cyclist routs project is also to increase the participation of business in green initiatives; tourism – Slovenia Green certification scheme, construction – Net zero certification schemes, or cultural – Climate mitigation in heritage buildings. Thus, it is expected that cleaner cities will attract more people, bring business interest, and boost a sustainable local economy.
    This project is also focused on renewable energy management and grid stability. For instance, the renewable energy produced should be first consumed, then stored in batteries; and the grid should only be used when there is not enough renewable energy available. The system should create a harmonisation between the supply (renewable energy and grid) and the demand (i.e. EV chargers, electric bicycles, heat pumps, lighting, internet connected devices) without exceeding the grid capacity.
    The implementation and management of the infrastructure will be executed by experts in facility and energy infrastructure management. All local requirements will be considered when deploying the wholesome solutions covering all steps from initial installation to regular maintenance.
    In addition, the project will enable you to reap the benefits of becoming a smarter region. For instance, the impact on the air quality being monitored, analysis of the increased use of bicycles, efficient and alternative routes that could save time and resources, and, last but not the least, efficient utilization of the infrastructure (i.e. EV chargers) when combining it with other services (rental e-cars, e-bikes, e-scooters).
    The same model can be replicated in cities, buildings, commercial properties, and industries; therefore, we are looking for a pioneer in smart mobility to implement this project together. Setting up a benchmark and leading the market to follow will enable you to have a major impact in global communities and the environment.

    Dear Luka,
    I’m expressing our interest in joining your project proposal on behalf of ANTROPOSERVICE SAS, a creative Italian SME, selected since 2011 as main partner in the “Festival dei due Parchi” aiming to rediscovering and highlighting the “common sense” of a creative part of the territory of the two National Parks of Monti Sibillini and Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga, straddling the Italian regions: Abruzzo, Marche, Lazio, Umbria, in order to let citizens responsibly and creatively regain a sense of belonging to the territories, to protect and valorise them, with the languages of art, culture and sport starting from the wonderful environmental, naturalistic and cultural microcosm. Within the Festival, Antroposervice Sas has successfully conceived and organized since its inception more than 100 events, creatively using the languages of art, culture and sport, originally combining cultural and natural heritage, to propose a deep love for the beauty of nature, of artistic, cultural, anthropological and social traditions.
    Among others, the “Festival dei due Parchi” and its events are based on raising awareness and organizing sustainable initiatives aiming to the protection and valorisation of natural eco-systems from anthropogenic exploitation, to the protection of natural habitats and biodiversity to help people develop a sense of profound respect for natural eco-systems and their interconnection with human life. Antroposervice staff provides international training activities for the update of professionals and experts in different fields: environmental sustainability, entrepreneurship, adult education, school education and youth, also designing innovative training modules and programmes for entrepreneurship, employability and creativity in general through proprietary learning ecosystems based on metaphorical systems withdrawn from the languages of art and European mythology to reinforce the so-called “life skills” of individuals such as, for instance: creative and critical thinking, deep and effective communication, interpersonal relationship, empathy and emotions. Since 2015 Antroposervice is in charge for the management of the 4-years post-graduate school for psychotherapy IPAEMarche (www.ipaemarche.com). Also thanks to this, it can count on a wide roster of international teachers and trainers in the fields of psychology, psychotherapy, sociology, anthropology, neurology, human sciences and other subjects.
    Antroposervice operates also in the fields of sport-tourism development especially in the territory at the heart of Italy, where four Region (Marche, Abruzzo, Umbria and Lazio) and their peoples, meet. It is a territory of beautiful mountains, hills and seaside, with outstanding cultural heritage, food and handicraft traditions, undergoing profound transformation, due to the shift in the national and global production framework. Antroposervice staff and project team have an outstanding track record in the development of international cooperation programmes and project as well as in the concept, implementation and management of European funded projects.
    Do not hesitate to contact us,
    regards,
    Franco Di Andrea
