WalkUrban aims at a better understanding of local accessibility and urban walkability in order to free up the potential for walking.

Through exploring the links between objective, subjective and perceived walking accessibility the project will identify key drivers for and obstacles to walking in various urban neighbourhoods in close collaboration with local stakeholders in three European cities (Genoa, Dortmund and Gothenburg). Citizens will be invited to participate in the assessment of selected walking routes of their neighbourhoods. The ultimate aim is to provide evidence for local solutions to support walking as a zero-emission, sustainable and active transport mode in urban areas.
