Abstract

A TOURISM MANAGEMENT TOOL FOR SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY

My input lies in investigating the concept of Circular Economy and Sharing Economy in the mobility system. Which materials are used, how can they be looped and what hidden energy or material uses exist? Finally, how can mobility’s energy and material use be ecologically, socially and economically sustainable?
