Public Transport is the backbone of cities' mobility and walking is the "glue" of an effective and efficient PT system.The International Federation of Pedestrians is in Valencia part of the consortium of UPPER Project -helping to Unleashing the Potential of Public Transport in Europe - a Horizon Europe project lead by @uitpofficial UPPER aims to strengthen the role of public transport as the cornerstone of sustainable and innovative mobility. The project will implement a combination of measures looking to push people out of private cars and to pull them closer to public transport in cities across Europe.We also keep an eye for worldwide transferability. ...

From one of our Australian members, Victoria Walks"I love walking in urban areas, getting lost, and letting a city and its people emerge ... 🏙"When I walk to work, I love that hour to myself, particularly in early morning darkness. 🚶‍♂️"It gets my brain working; it’s when I do my best thinking. It helps me solve the problems whirring away in my head." 👍"I don’t like getting stuck standing, waiting at traffic lights! 🚷"So I challenge myself to always keep moving. I change my route when I need, or cross mid-block where it feels safe to do so ..."Sometimes I walk in my own city as a visitor would. I take chances on unknown routes. 🎲"I explore to give myself a chance of being enchanted here, the way I would in a foreign city."At home we can be creatures of habit. We walk the same way each day."When we travel we see the world differently. We see and delight in things we might not usually even notice. Little things become more interesting, take on greater meaning. 🌎"A seat becomes a window to everything that is happening on the street, rather than somewhere to sit waiting for a bus! "Leaves swirling in the wind can seem like a dance being played out ..." 🍂"I like how the world gets bigger when I walk. It’s because time slows. My senses come alive, you see more, feel more, touch more and smell more." "With the slower pace of walking, you can say to a companion “look at that” rather than “did you see that?” You have time to take more in."#LoveWalking #connection #walkability #activeliving #humanscale #explore #oldisnew VicHealth Municipal Association of Victoria International Federation of Pedestrians Walk21 Queensland Walks WalkSydney Living Streets Walk On Merri-bek ...

Child pedestrian Casualties on England's roads up 16% "A new study in England reveals that nearly 50 child pedestrians are killed or injured on England's roads every day" Despite this cruel reality we still have to deal with difficult political and social opposition when advocating for safe school areas, reducing speed limits and parking space or reducing the use of motorised vehicles in our cities. Let's focus on pedestrian-centric urbanism and advance the concept of road danger reduction by focusing on the source of danger - motorised vehicles. Enforcing 30km/h limits, improving the space dedicated to pedestrians, reducing car lanes and using well-designed traffic calming measures. We need to go beyond Vision Zero.www.localgov.co.uk/Child-pedestrian-casualties-on-Englands-roads-up-16--/60518#roadsafety #pedestrians #30km #roaddangerreduction #beyondvisionzero #pedestriancentric ...
