This course introduces the fundamentals of urban mobility planning. Mobility choices affect all aspects of city life: from economic efficiency to social inclusion, sustainability, and quality of life. These choices shape and reshape cities in irreversible ways. Urban life is much better for everyone when we invest in mobility for all, not just car users. In this course, you will:
  • Increase your awareness of common urban mobility problems;
  • Start understanding how key transport modes can be improved for people in urban areas;
  • Learn about the roles of political bodies in making change happen;
  • Start understanding how things could be different in your urban area and how to make it happen.
Multi-language videos:  

To make this course accessible for a greater audience, the videos’ subtitles are available in English, French, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Slovak and Turkish.
