Providing leadership for walking in Europe
Walk21 Europe will capitalise on Europe’s ambitions for urban mobility and sustainable cities, as set out in the EU Green Deal, the Smart and Sustainable Mobility Strategy, and the new European Urban Mobility Framework. Communities, researchers, practitioners, and politicians will be encouraged to follow those priorities with an emphasis on sustainability, low carbon transport, inclusiveness/equity, road safety, public engagement and user satisfaction. Walk21 Europe will monitor policy progress, strengthen capacity in the community of mobility practitioners and support the delivery and evaluation of walking projects.
Ineke Spapé: "Growing capacity is essential to underpin the delivery of our vision for a more walkable Europe. Walk21 Europe will coordinate new research, provide training, walkshops and tools and make sure inspirational case studies are accessible to professionals, students and advocacy groups across the region."
