In the North Sea, belonging to the archipelago of the West Frisian Islands, is the island of Ameland which extends for 268,50 km² and is home to 3503 inhabitants.
Thanks to the project "Cradle-to-Cradle Island", Launched in 2009, the mobility sectors on the island. The main problem to be solved was tourism: in fact, most people (especially families) brought their cars on the ferry, increasing traffic on the island. So the project found an alternative and sustainable solution: the "vrachtfielts", one modular bicycle, which responds to different needs, being provided as freight transport, therefore able to also carry the suitcases of tourists. With this project, the island of Ameland has achieved the goal of significantly reducing climate-changing emissions.
