Meeting between the Yucatan delegation and authorities of the Ljubljana region, Slovenia.

Yucatán is one of the regions of Mexico that participates in the exchange program with the European Union for cities that are interested in sustainable development. For this reason, the group of Mexican representatives visits a counterpart territory in Europe; in this case, Ljubljana, in Slovenia, looking for experiences in the development of mobility options for the transport system.

Mexicans sit from April 8 to 12 with local authorities to learn the lessons that this region can share with others in Latin America, to meet the demand for transport services caused by the increase in population and to combat climate change according to international agreements, such as the Urban Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Regarding the visit, previously a delegation representing Ljubljana had the opportunity to travel to Yucatan territory to learn about the mobility options that have been developed in the region in relation to this issue. Now it’s Yucatan’s turn to travel to the European region.
