Active transport in the metropolitan century: Policies and measures to support walking & cycling and their impact on urban development


Workshop description 

In transport, a reduction in energy consumption has an immediate and direct impact on the quality of life, particularly in urban areas. A well-managed city limits its individual motorised vehicles and facilitates integration in public spaces. Tailored policies and measures are needed to increase the modal share of non-motorised active forms of travel. This event will showcase examples of successful policies and measures at the European and regional levels that maximise mobility options and release funds for smart urban road design, whilst reducing congestion, noise and air pollution. The discussion is followed by an exhibition of ongoing mobility projects, supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme (IEE) and Horizon 2020.
