CityWalk project helps cities in the Danube Region to reduce emissions, noise and to become safer, better places to live, by increasing the role of more sustainable forms of mobility in the urban transport mix, especially active transport forms – like walking and biking. To do so the main focus of project is to improve the key conditions of walkability.
Increasing greenhouse gas emissions and congestions are negative side effects of urbanization, resulting from inefficient and unsustainable local transport systems. A key challenge in cities is to improve transport systems and accessibility in an environmentally-friendly manner. CityWalk project will result in improved urban mobility - while reducing emissions, noise levels and congestions, increasing safety and making cities more liveable places (and also contributing to a healthier population).
Although the emphasis is on walking, the proposed project addresses the challenge with a holistic approach – improving urban mobility through efficiently combining various means of transport. Efficient urban transport systems, with an emphasis on active forms of transport – especially walking have various conditions – we help cities in the Danube Region to identify the obstacles, develop and implement a plan to address those obstacles. To do so, our partnership will develop a toolkit (walkability guide, index and online tool), design 8 walkability plans, deliver 8 pilot actions, develop and present policy proposals.
