THE PEP - webinar: National Masterplans for Walking - Corner stones for promotion of active mobility

This Webinar is organized as virtual side event in the frame of the 5 High Level Ministerial Conference on the Transport Health Environment Pan European Programme THE PEP „Building forward better by transforming to new clean, safe, healthy and inclusive mobility and transport“ 17-18 May 2021 Vienna online

Walking is the most environment friendly and healthy transport mode – no emissions, good for individual fitness and pure pleasure.

Therefore, walking has to be integrated in mobility and city policies on an equal level as other transport modes.

The Transport, Health and Environment Pan-
European Programme (THE PEP) is a major step forward to promote active mobility and put walking in the forefront of mobility policies.

Many cities are considering walking as important, but on the national level only very few countries have developed supportive strategies on walking.

This webinar will highlight outstanding initiatives of national Strategies like Austria Masterplan Walking, Norwegian Walking Strategy, but also on city level like the city of Salzburg.

Further presentation will focus on the good practice examples of Switzerland as well as initiative of the Walk 21 and planning of resilient walking infrastructure.

For further information the Austrian Masterplan Walking is available (in german) on klimaaktivmobil-website.

Within the klimaaktiv mobil progamme, the Austrian Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology has started a financial support programme to promote walking and walking infrastructure.
