Share your good practices on active travel promotion & become a Friend of PASTA!

18 May 2015

The EU-funded PASTA project is inviting local authorities from across Europe to share good examples of walking and cycling initiatives to promote physical activity, and to join a pioneering community connecting transport and health agendas.

As part of the PASTA project, we are lauching a call for good practices on the promotion of walking and cycling with the aim to bring together:

  • measures that have been proven to improve the health and well-being of citizens
  • examples of successful cooperation across diverse sectors and city departments

and to understand how, and in what way, urban and transport planners, health experts, and the civil society, can work better together.

The top five most representative examples will be selected by a board of experts and published as part of a handbook in 2017, including policy recommendations for active travel promotion.

Outstanding good practice examples and project findings on the link between health, environment and transport will be shared at a public workshop in Brussels on 18 November 2015.


Call for good practices

Does your city promote healthier lifestyles for citizens through walking and cycling? Do you want to share your experience with other towns and cities?

Deadline for submitting your good practice example: 30 November 2015.
