The idea of traveling around Europe and experience what is actually going on on the tracks is in our heads already for a long time. Also the idea of publically hanging huge metropa-banners in all the metropa cities.
Now we have the chance to make this really happen.
We've been invited by the Austrian Cultural Forum to come to the Romanian capital Bucharest and do a lecture and workshop. As we are metropists, we go there by train, of course, which means over 40hrs of real train experience, having the opportunity to talk to many people on board and to post a lot our impressions. By the time, we collected further partners, such as the ÖBB Infra, EURail, the Süddeutsche Zeitung and others, to make this a worthwhile trip and maybe turn it into permanence some day.
What's the purpose of this endeavor?
We want to get as much attention as possible, meet representatives of politics, railway business, NGOs, create and get in touch with networks of Europe-affiliated people in order to widen our scope and create as much awareness as possible for our core goals: a borderless Europe with ecological and affordable mobility for everybody.
So Bucharest, here we come!
