Within the PUMAS project, the City of Venice has developed a comprehensive strategy for making sustainable mobility an essential element of its urban and educational policy: from the Guidelines for a “shared sustainable school mobility plan” to the certification and labelling system of schools and the active involvement of parents and pupils in transforming both physical places and mobility behaviours.
