The financial crisis is a challenge to the development of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). It is the opportunity to put forward our green alternative vision: Think green: abandon the obsession with big, expensive and long-term projects and focus on the European added-value of smaller projects and cross-border rail links. Act smart: transparency and civil society participation is crucial. Save money: spend less money and minimise external, social and environmental costs. We need Trans-European Networking and coordination between green actions!
