#9 From Brussels to Strasbourgh with Josef Doppelbauer (European Railway Agency) and Pascal Smet (Secretary of State, Brussels Capital Region)

 
The Spring 2021 trainees of the European Committee of the Regions could not conclude their Y-Factor project on the European Year of Rail without a special episode on the Connecting Europe Express in Brussels, and the European Youth Event in Strasbourg. When the Connecting Europe Express train arrived in Brussels after crossing multiple European countries and dozens of cities, we were joined by Mr Josef Doppelbauer, the Executive Director of the European Union Agency for Railways, to reflect on the challenges and potentials of the railway sector in the near future. We were also pleased to be joined by CoR member Mr Pascal Smet, serving as Secretary of State of the Brussels-Capital Region, who reflected with us on sustainable urban mobility with specific examples from the city of Brussels. After the Connecting Europe Express, we headed to Strasbourg to give a workshop, Getting on (train-)track, at the European Youth Event, where we were joined by Erasmus by Train, and virtually by the European Year of Rail Rapporteur, MEP Anna Deparnay Grunenberg (DE, Greens/EFA), MEP Mr Javi Lopez Fernandez (ES, S&D), and CoR member Mr Kieran McCarthy (IE, EA). Hear all about it in this special episode! See you in the many stops and stations around Europe! ​
