STATE
OF THE ART

The European strategy on urban environment intends or proposes? To "change radically the balance among different transport systems, favouring public over private and reducing the impact of car traffic in our cities." This requires effective tools to encourage the use of sustainable transport modes as well as awareness and training of all the community to reduce the use of private vehicles in daily trips.

Universities are important poles of attraction for frequent travellers; thousands of daily trips are made towards and from European universities. Therefore, the mobility generated by universities should be taken into account in the planning of transport system in cities.






Universities have their own management bodies that make decisions regarding the territorial management of campuses, the infrastructures and services within the campuses, the work/study schedules of university population, and other important issues that affect the mobility of thousands of people.

Moreover, universities have a key role in the education of the citizens and professionals of the future; they are a powerful engine of change. The integration of sustainable mobility practices in the education of students encourages the future change.

Therefore universities are a powerful instrument to implement EU policy now and in the future.
