This chapter presents the results of the fieldwork carried out in remote and secluded areas on Greek islands through stakeholders’ interviews and focus groups with citizens. The main objective was to assess groups vulnerable to mobility poverty, in particular children and populations living in remote rural areas. This was implemented on the island of Naxos and on the much smaller one of Iraklia.

Interviews and focus groups show profound isolation, but also robust commitment to seeking collective solutions to mobility poverty, at least on Iraklia. While privately owned cars are the dominant means of transport, informal peer-to-peer car-pooling is very common in remote areas. However, there are weaker social strata, as children, the elderly and unemployed are more prone to suffer social exclusion.
