How can a city promote active travel for school children? By giving them safe routes to school and promoting those routes. In order for this to work, cities should cooperate very closely with teachers, parents and other stakeholders. On 26 January the province of Granada and the city of Malaga presented the lessons learned from their safe routes to school programmes. With the support of the CIVITAS Activity Fund, the provincial authority of Granada founded the Work Group for Child Mobility. The group was comprised of technicians and political members of the city councils, teachers, parents, and other stakeholders of those municipalities interested in the implementation of the Safe Routes to School programme. They organised several workshops in 8 municipalities. The city of Malaga is working with 10 schools, and they implement different routes for pedestrians and cyclists. It is a participative project where they involve the entire school community. In addition they are supporting an app to facilitate the coordination with families.

Speaker: Thomas Stokell (Love to Ride): How we can apply behaviour change theory to get more people riding bicycles? Thomas Stokell is social marketer with more than 12 years’ experience designing behavior change programs specifically to promote cycling. He ran National Bike Week in New Zealand for 5 years before moving to the UK in 2007 where he established Love to Ride - the online platform that encourages more people to ride bicycles. Thomas will present their behaviour change framework and describe how cities and advocacy groups can apply a number of different behaviour change theories to encourage cycling. A description of how the Love to Ride online platform has been designed to incorporate behaviour change theory will also be given along with a case study of the Workplace Cycle Challenge programme.

CIVITAS VANGUARD, and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Mobility Management' organised a webinar on 22nd January 2013 about how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and how to assure basic mobility for all citizens by providing mobility training for specific target groups. Training is often associated with children and youngsters. Many adults however miss the basic knowledge or skills to use certain transport modes, at risk of social isolation. Through five presentations and a 15-minute discussion, this webinar looked at training initiatives that enable different target groups to master and choose the mode of transport that best fits their needs and trip purposes. Both CIVITAS and non-CIVITAS experiences were presented.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD, CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Less car intensive lifestyles' held a first webinar on how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and towards clean and energy efficient transport by addressing children and young adults on 2 March 2012. When walking and cycling, children become more aware of their surroundings and develop road safety skills as well as improve their ability to anticipate other road users. Furthermore, walking and cycling contribute to the recommended amount of daily exercise that children and young adults need. The dependency on the private car needs to be reduced if cities are to achieve cleaner and better transport. Through five presentations and a 15-minute discussion, this webinar looked at promoting car-reduced and car-independent lifestyles, which seek to make more sustainable use of the car through car-pooling, car-sharing and the use of non-motorised modes such as cycling and walking.
