Successful school mobility management practices – CIVITAS study visits

The city of Reggio Emilia (Italy) has developed a comprehensive approach to school mobility management. Since 2003, mobility education for students has been regarded as one of the main driving lines of mobility policies and in 2009, Reggio Emilia developed and promoted a manifesto for safe, sustainable and independent mobility on home-to-school routes. This was done with the support of city districts, school boards and managers and a broad range of stakeholder organisations.

The city organizes a CIVITAS study visit on 11-12 October and all interested parties can get involved. Over two days, the visiting cities will learn about Reggio Emilia’s approach to school mobility management; interesting projects like the Bicibus and Pedibus initiatives; and the EU project SCHOOL CHANCE. They will also gain first-hand experience of some of the initiatives being implemented through dedicated site visits.
