Walking and cycling represent the greenest forms of transport as they do not produce any emissions. Known as “active mobility”, these forms of transport not only can help meet European Green Deal’s objectives, but also can make cities more livable by reducing traffic congestion, air and noise pollution, and improving citizens’ health conditions.
Drawing from municipalities’ best practices, this webinar aims at tackling all aspects of urban planning for active mobility, starting with the engagement of citizens in the process (Valongo, Portugal), and passing through the re-allocation of public spaces (Turin, Italy), an attentive design to make active mobility areas accessible to the population as a whole (Vienna, Austria), and data-driven monitoring of cycling routes to keep improving the policy-making process (Oldenburg, Germany). The scene will be set by the European Mobility Week.

Context: the “Coalition of the willing on sustainable mobility”
With the launch of the new Covenant Commitment in April 2021, cities are now committing to becoming climate neutral by 2050 and setting mid and long-term targets consistent with the EU objectives and at least as ambitious as their national targets. With this increased ambition in place, reducing emissions from the transport sector is going to be a key element for the climate neutral transformation of Covenant signatories.
Our webinar series ‘Policy options to reduce emissions from transport’ will present different approaches and examples already implemented in signatory cities, which will give practical ideas on what type of actions can be included in your new or revised SECAPs.
Each webinar will also allow time for discussion around common challenges and point participants towards resources, projects and additional information developed by the expert organisations part of the Covenant of Mayors Coalition of the Willing on Sustainable Mobility, who have contributed to this webinar series.
