The Central European Active Mobility Lab (CEAML) was officially launched with a kick-off meeting in Bratislava, including fruitful discussions among the project partners and with the Clean Cities Campaign, as well as a guided cycle tour through the city.
The project aims to advance the decarbonisation of the transport sector in Czechia, Hungary, and Slovakia. This is a major challenge in the Visegrad region, given the old, polluting vehicle fleet and the relatively low income of the population. Our project addresses the growing number of passenger cars and their negative externalities by providing evidence and momentum for (potentially) zero-carbon modes of transport that bring multiple benefits.
Working closely with lead partner Cyklokoalícia and partners Auto*Mat and Hungarian Cyclists' Club, Mobilissimus will be responsible for leading the work package on pilot studies on the impacts of public space alterations. We will develop the methodology and guidelines for pilot selection and evaluation, support the local partners throughout the process including ex-ante and ex-post surveys, and summarise the findings in a lessons learned report.
The project is funded by the European Climate Foundation.
