Living Laboratories: 10 Years of CIVITAS from Aalborg to Zagreb

When it comes to mobility, there is no doubt that cities truly are “living laboratories” and it is exactly this pioneering spirit that we seek to capture and present in Living Laboratories: 10 Years of CIVITAS from Aalborg to Zagreb.

Since the CIVITAS Initiative began in 2002, over 800 potential and actual transport and mobility solutions have been explored and evaluated in nearly 70 cities. The goal in all cases has been the same — to discover concrete means that cities can use to make transport not only cleaner, but better.

Innovative Urban Transport Solutions - CIVITAS makes the difference

Innovative Urban Transport Solutions – CIVITAS makes the difference is the story of how 25 cities learned to make urban transport cleaner and better. It is intended as a critical review of the transport measures that were developed and implemented during the CIVITAS Plus. Taking a thematic approach, measures are reviewed and a set of recommendations, focusing on concrete examples, is given for each. In addition, case studies complement and offer in-depth information.

CIVITAS Plus in Numbers - Achievements in sustainable urban mobility

CIVITAS Plus in Numbers highlights key results from the CIVITAS Plus phase of the Initiative, which ran from 2008 to 2012. Five demonstration projects were implemented during this period, involving 25 cities from 15 countries. Out of a total of over 300 measures, 48 have been selected for inclusion in this publication, based on their contribution to economic, environmental and social concerns — that is, to the three pillars of sustainable development.

CIVITAS Case Study - Campaigns promoting the use of public transport and cycling in Szczecinek

This measure supported all other measures at the local level in their dissemination and promotion work. Campaigns were organised to promote new forms of mobility and increase cycling, especially among school children and youngsters, to influence travel behaviour and increase the use of public transport. Campaigns are the best way to address large target groups, particularly youth and children.
