New CIVITAS e-publication reveals daring mobility measures in seven cities

Learning from your city peers as if you were visiting them - how is that supposed to work during a global health pandemic?

As traditional face-to-face peer exchanges could not be organised this year, CIVITAS collaborated with cities to be daring and re-invent ways of exchanging knowledge and learning from each other.

Seven cities were asked to film their best mobility solutions and share their insights through short case studies. Their stories are featured in a new interactive e-publication, an inspiring and valuable steppingstone on the route towards greater sustainable urban mobility.

It will allow you to travel virtually and learn from Aachen (Germany), Bratislava (Slovakia), Helsinki (Finland), Madrid (Spain), Rethymno (Greece), Szeged (Hungary) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), as well as to get in touch with contacts from the cities whose mobility measures you are most interested in.

To mark the publication‘s launch, an online peer-to-peer exchange event was was organised. It featured the seven cities in the e-publication presenting their mobility measures in an interactive format. Six breakout rooms served as informal forums for discussing the measures with their respective cities. Aachen and Madrid presented on e-mobility and public transport electrification; Bratislava and Sarajevo on public space re-allocation and tactical urbanism; Rethymno, Helsinki and Madrid on smart solutions and smart planning; Aachen and Szeged on green mobility strategies with private companies; Bratislava, Sarajevo and Helsinki on boosting cycling with shared bicycle and cargo bike schemes; and Madrid and Rethymno on active modes and vulnerable road users.

The recording of the event will be made available soon.
