With the Fairmobility project, she works closely with citizen groups on sustainable and fair mobility offers in the UNESCO protected Salzkammergut regionthe current European Cultural capital, with two dozen small sized municipalities in 2 different Austrian Counties. The focus of the project is on empowering women and gender minorities so they can lead the way towards a just mobility strategy in peri-urban and rural areas.
