The first Cyclurban Project will End in February 2020 but with Cyclurban+ we will continue where the first project ended and built on the work already done. Cyclurban+ will be supported by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI).
Cyclurban+ starts in autumn 2019 with
The project „Mobility change, not climate change“ (Cyclurban+) will advance cycling as a measure for sustainable urban mobility and climate mitigation. In particular, the project will look at the current situation and develop measures to strengthen cycling mobility. It will demonstrate how to integrate cycling into municipal strategies in two major cities: Bratislava (Slovakia) and Brno (Czech Republic).
The following measures
are planned to support cycling and fill knowledge gaps where this is needed to take better planning decisions:
- Start a capacity building program on cycling through seminars and an online platform on
fundingof cycling infrastructure in each country
- Cycling policy package for Slovakia: Two policy briefs & establishment of an online system of monitoring and preventing cycling accidents
- Cycling policy package for Czech Republik: Development of a set of national policy recommendations, two policy briefs and a BYPAD audit for Brno
- Strengthened NGO capacities in both countries by dissemination and exchange
All over the world, urbanization is increasing. More and more people move to- or live in cities. Thus, the necessity to find smart solutions for mobility and transport in metropolitan areas is rapidly growing. A successful fight against climate change implies that traffic-emissions in cities must be kept at low levels while life quality, time efficiency, and health should increase simultaneously. This makes a transformation of urban traffic systems inevitable.
A major role in a climate-friendly urban transportation system will be played by bicycles. There
