Are you interested in learning more about successful school mobility management practices? Do you want to share your experience on this issue? Then don't miss this opportunity! A few places are still available to join the CIVITAS study visit in Reggio Emilia on 11-12 October!
Besides being an active member of the CIVITAS network, over the last 10 years, the city of Reggio Emilia (Italy) has developed a comprehensive approach to school mobility management. Since 2003, mobility education for students has been regarded as one of the main driving lines of mobility policies and in 2009, Reggio Emilia developed and promoted a manifesto for safe, sustainable and independent mobility on home-to-school routes. This was done with the support of city districts, school boards and managers and a broad range of stakeholder organisations.
Over two days, the visiting cities will learn about Reggio Emilia’s approach to school mobility management; interesting projects like the Bicibus and Pedibus initiatives; and the EU project SCHOOL CHANCE. They will also gain first-hand experience of some of the initiatives being implemented through dedicated site visits.
For more information, please consult the draft agenda below.
Places are limited and we invite you to express your interest as soon as possible and no later than 8 September by getting in contact with Matilde Chinellato (Matilde [dot] chinellato [at] eurocities [dot] eu) and Ivan Neirotti (ivan [dot] neirotti [at] eurocities [dot] eu).
Please note that no funding is available to cover travel and accommodation costs.
