CityWalk - Towards Energy Responsible Places: Establishing Walkable Cities In The Danube Region

Project duration: 1. 12. 2016 – 31. 5. 2019
Programme: Interreg Danube Transnational Programme
Lead partner: Scientific Research centre Bistra Ptuj (Slovenia)
Partner countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia

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. 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.
