REALLOCATE launches series of sustainable mobility webinars for participating cities
20 November 2023
How can we best share road space? By pooling space or splitting it up between different modes of transport? This was just one of several debates at the latest REALLOCATE webinar on strategies and planning tools to reduce the climate impact of mobility. Project partner, EUROCITIES, has recently launched this webinar series aimed at knowledge-sharing among city practitioners and related experts responsible for REALLOCATE interventions. The aim is to equip the cities with the knowledge, tools and awareness of the consortium’s potential, to be able to plan and co-create the interventions in their Safe & Sustainable Mobility Labs. Other topics covered over the past three months have included traffic calming measures, modal shifts and nature-based solutions.
The Labs are the urban areas dedicated to piloting mobility solutions with a focus on co-designing and co-developing technologies and interventions to promote a modal shift towards more active travel. The cities carry out pilots in 15 urban and peri-urban areas (two pilots in each Lead City and one in each Twin City). The focus of the pilots is to contribute to greater safety, inclusivity, affordability, as well as the cities’ carbon neutrality objectives.
Webinar #4 is due to take place on 18 December 2023 under the title ‘Safe system approach and vision zero’. The aim is to create awareness of potential approaches and tools that can be used in redesigning mobility and urban space in connection with climate objectives, with a particular focus on urban road safety.
