DTP Programme project CITY WALK given the public choice award at REGIOSTARS awards
Congratulations to The CityWalk project that is helping 10 cities in the Danube region to reduce emissions, noise and street congestion through a range of measures that promote more sustainable forms of mobility.
The project focuses on the simplest form of urban mobility - walking. Making cities more walkable requires changes - including the smart integration of walking with other transport modes. Citywalk offers an innovative solution by placing the citizens’ needs in the center and combining new smart walkability concepts and solutions to address those needs, tackling climate change, improving air quality and reducing noise.
The project brings together 17 partners from nine countries – Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. Municipalities, development agencies, research organisations and chambers of commerce from across the Danube region are sharing common practices and methodologies to help cities develop efficient, people-friendly urban transport systems that prioritise walking over motorised transport.
