A proposed network of European cities and towns located in economic corridors seeking to plan and implement actions to significantly enhance sustainable local economic development by focusing on challenges and opportunities for green growth.

An economic corridor is the outcome of continuing investment in cities and towns located along major transportation routes that connect large cities and urban regions. There are downsides to the development of transport-led economic corridors. Often the heavy volume of traffic in these corridors are responsible for significant greenhouse gas emissions and have impacts on the quality of life along the corridor.

The project will explore innovations that could bring new green businesses to their cities. The project will also explore how existing businesses in their cities can change to become greener and focus on reducing their carbon footprint.
