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

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.
