The COST members have been very active in organizing 7 special sessions in upcoming international conferences. The main focus is on NeWSp during the COVID-19 pandemic and impacts on peripheries (including rural areas), gender issues, commuting and well-being.
Among the 6 sessions, a closed special session is organized at RSA 2021 to discuss the outcomes of the first two years of our Action (CA18214) (see below). Thanks to the efforts of the organizers and welcome to the participants and their abstracts!
