ACTIV8! develops strategic planning tools for local and supra-regional actors pursuing to efficiently promote active mobility. The project goal is (1) to develop a mathematical/statistical model systematically examining and quantifying the links between active mobility (walking, cycling) and its spatial, social and infrastructural factors on communal and regional levels. On this basis, a further objective of the project is (2) to derive und test region-specific and target group-specific measures and strategies. (3) Thirdly, to develop dedicated planning tools for regional benchmarking and the simulation of impacts. Also, options for integrating the ACTIV8! approach into current planning processes will be developed.
