This event is aimed at all citizens who wish to learn about good active mobility practices (walking, cycling, etc.) and discuss them.

A Participation Certificate issued by the EIT Urban Mobility RIS Hub Portugal will be made available to each participant.

Target Audience: All Citizens interested in discussing the topic.

Official Language: Portuguese.

About this event:

Active mobility (walking, bicycles, scooters, ...) is increasingly present in the day-to-day life of cities due to the new opportunities for circulation and benefits, at different levels, that they bring to the citizen. However, as their integration into cities has not always been done in the best way, there is an opportunity to get citizens to debate the best practices of active mobility.

In a structured debate organized in sessions, we invite citizens to discuss the best ways to implement these practices in cities, so that their ideas can integrate proposals that we will make to policy makers.


14:30 - 14.45: Welcome session and introduction to the event

14:45 -15: 30: Group work on mobility patterns

15: 30- 16:00: Presentation of good practices of active mobility and debate

16:00 - 16:10: Break

16:10 - 17:00: Debate on active mobility in the neighborhood / city of the participants

17:00 - 17:25: Presentation of results and key ideas
