The presentation was illustrated at the CEEM CoP Webinar: “Achieving Low Carbon Mobility: Urban Transportation Modelling, Public Awareness and Behavioural Change" on tge 10th of October 2013
CEEM CoP stands for Community Energy and Emissions Modelling (CEEM) Community of Practice (CoP).
CEEM CoP is an informal group supporting CEEM practitioners and local governments in furthering greenhouse gas modelling, target-setting and action in communities across BC – www.toolkit.bc.ca/ceem
Mobility is an important part of daily life. Progressive community planning and transportation design can greatly reduce the need for automobile travel, instead providing a diverse range of active transportation alternatives.
This presentation on the CATCH project looks at how transportation-related data can be used to understand a city’s travel footprint and help to inform city planning and programs to promote individual behaviour change.
It reviews the findings and lessons learned from the ‘CATCH Project’ (Carbon Aware Travel Choice): a 2 million euro-funded project, involving 11 partners across 6 European Union countries, aimed to develop a knowledge platform to help urban communities move to less carbon-intensive transportation systems. This presentation touches on the important role of developing a system to compare and contrast best practices, identify the many motivators for change to low carbon mobility, and use tools for engaging the public and decision makers to support innovation and change.
