A project looking at the links between health and mobility has officially launched a two-year survey in seven cities across Europe. Residents from Antwerp (Belgium), Barcelona (Spain), London (UK), Örebro (Sweden), Rome (Italy), Vienna (Austria) and Zürich (Switzerland) are being asked to participate in the survey which seeks to better understand the barriers and opportunities people in Europe face when walking, cycling and/or taking public transport; and what this might mean for safety.

Participants will be asked to answer a simple survey in the first instance, then a shorter follow up survey at regular intervals, to build up a picture of people’s day to day activities. Findings from the survey will be used by policy makers and practitioners working in transport and health to support informed decisions for investments into walking and cycling. For more information and to take part in the survey, visit survey.pastaproject.eu.
