Steering Urban Sustainability with a Self-Assessment Toolkit

Dec 20, 2023 | News

The GREENMOBILITY project is a significant effort given the growing environmental difficulties and the pressing need to cut CO2 emissions. This initiative, which addresses the substantial influence that transportation has on urban ecosystems, is a major force behind the shift to sustainable urban mobility, which is in line with the objectives of the European Green Deal.

One of the main deliverables of the GREENMOBILITY project is the development of the self-assessment tool. This tool seeks to transform how people interact with urban transportation; it is more than just a set of surveys. During a time when individual responsibility for environmental footprints is crucial, this self-evaluation tool serves an essential function, since it helps users to measure and comprehend the influence they have on the environment, with a special emphasis on the carbon emissions linked to different modes of transportation. The tool gives people a clear image of their own contributions to urban pollution, enabling them to make more informed decisions about sustainable mobility.

The GREENMOBILITY Self-Assessment tool is intended to be both thorough and easy to use, appealing to a wide range of users regardless of their level of technical proficiency or environmental knowledge. 

Specifically, the the tool provides:

  • Opportunities for users to evaluate their own environmental impact, and learn how their regular trips affect carbon emissions
  • Solutions for sustainable mobility, by promoting sustainable forms of transportation that are suited to specific lifestyles, and offering workable, realistic substitutes for lowering carbon emissions
  • Educational resources by informing users about the wider effects that their decisions about urban transportation have on social, economic and ecological sustainability. 

The GREENMOBILITY Self-Assessment tool is designed for users that seek to learn more about their environmental impact and how to make more environmentally friendly transportation decisions. This comprises citizens who care about the environment, students, working professionals and those who commute from cities. Furthermore, the tool can be used as a teaching resource for educational institutions, helping trainers or professors to incorporate sustainable mobility ideas into their courses. Another group that can benefit from this tool are policymakers and urban planners, since the results of the tool can offer insights into trends in public transportation and citizen behavior. Therefore, it can help them create more sustainable policies for urban mobility. 

The GREENMOBILITY Self-Assessment tool will be available for free in all partner languages on the project’s website.
