Urban Nodes

The webinar is organised in the framework of the study “Improving the efficiency of the transport system in urban nodes of the TEN-T core network”, which was carried out on behalf of DG MOVE. The 88 urban nodes are often the starting point or the final destination ("first” and “last mile") for passengers and freight moving. From the TEN-T perspective, the main aim is to remove urban bottlenecks and missing physical, technical and organisational links on the infrastructure. The main challenge for urban nodes is to improve multi-modal connections and at the same time consider connections with local and regional transport to ensure smooth first and last miles in passengers’ and freight transport. The new TEN-T policy, formulated in the TEN-T Guidelines (2013), is no longer perceived as merely a funding instrument for major infrastructure projects, but a policy which takes the network holistic planning approach as the main pillar.

CIVITAS

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.
