Following the recent call for a cycling strategy from the Luxembourg Presidency of the European Council, the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions, a new policy report prepared by the European Transport Safety Council and the intense advocacy work done by the European Cycling Federation, the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Safety and Security gave its contribution to the policy development and kept CIVITAS cities informed and actively involved in this very important topic.
A webinar presenting the latest policy news about Cycling safety and the current development was organized on the 13 October 2016 at 14.30.
The main objective of this webinar was to present the new policy developments in cycling and cycling safety and the ongoing actions as well as allowing the TG members and the overall CIVITAS community to bring their concrete local contributions and experiences on board.
The webinar hosted the following speakers:
- Safe Cycling – How Europe Can Contribute? Ellen Townsend, European Transport Safety Council
- Why do cyclists feel safe in Gdansk? Monika Evini, Project Manager, Active Mobility Unit, City of Gdansk
