Project Summary

For EIE, increasing the % of travel done by walking and cycling is a clear way to reduce CO2. Working in 6 urban areas (Budapest, Dublin, Granada, Graz, London and Siracusa) and focussing on behavioural change through the use of ’soft measures’ (education, training and publicity), ASTUTE will overcome the organisational barriers that prevent an increase in the use of walking and cycling in European cities. This will be achieved across a variety of policy and decision-making systems, through the provision and use of practical solutions in both the public and private sectors. Measures will be piloted in the private sector through Workplace Travel Plans.
It is difficult to achieve coordinated delivery of a network of usable footpaths and cycleways, supported by information to users and facilities at the point of arrival.
ASTUTE will investigate the reasons for this, listening to stakeholders locally, nationally and via EU networks. We will draw up a typology of barriers and analyse the best practice experience of organisations in overcoming these barriers.
ASTUTE will then draft a toolkit for use by municipalities and employers.
ASTUTE partners will test the draft toolkit in a variety of situations; comparing progress and results during the 12-18 month testing period. This will involve municipalities and employers, and will address various actions to promote walking and cycling.
The ASTUTE toolkit will then be finalised, presented as a DVD in 10 EU languages, and disseminated.


STEER projects promote the more sustainable energy use in transport (i.e. increased energy efficiency, new and renewable fuel sources, and the take-up of alternatively propelled vehicles). The specific focus is on alternative vehicle propulsion, policy measures for the more efficient use of energy in transport, and strenghthening the knowledge of local management agencies in the transport field.
