The National Competency Network for Sustainable Mobility celebrates birthday: Network supporting municipalities for three years now
The National Competency Network for Sustainable Mobility, or NaKoMo (Nationale Kompetenznetzwerk für nachhaltige Mobilität), turned three years old in April 2022. Over this short period, NaKoMo has become the central point of contact for sustainable mobility issues at local, state and federal levels. It facilitates a nationwide interdisciplinary exchange on all aspects of sustainable mobility across difference topics. NaKoMo therefore adds a valuable contribution to the range of diverse funding opportunities.
