ACTIVE ACCESS - EU-project for an environmentally friendly local mobility in cities
Active Access aimedto increase the use of cycling and walking through communication measures. It was focussed on short everyday trips in local areas, in order to benefit people's health, and the health of the local economy. It aimed to transfer longer car trips to shorter walking and cycling trips by changing people's mental maps of their local neighbourhoods so that they realise what is available on their doorstep, rather than in the edge of town retail park.
Active Access was an EU funded project within the Intelligent Energy Europe programme. 14 towns in 11 countries worked together with five research institutes. Difu supported the municipal practice partners concerning their action plans, their networking with other players in the field of transport, mobility, and training, with the dissemination of good practices, and through the dissemination of project results. The Project started in August 2009 and finishesdin July 2012.
Active Access implementation partner in Germany was the City of Stuttgart with its international initiative Cities for Mobility. The last global meeting of towns took place on 1st through 4th July 2012, motto: "The Safe Streets Challenge" (www.cities-for-mobility.net).
