CHAMP Final Conference
Learning from Leading Cycling Cities in Europe
Final CHAMP Workshop
Gent, 11-12 September 2014
The European CHAMP project ended September 2014 and had a CHAMP Final Workshop in Gent!
CHAMP has developed and tested a performance analysis tool, building on self-analysis as well as peer review by other cities. It allows cities to identify strengths and weaknesses in their cycling policies, summarising what has already been achieved, indicating what can still be added as a baseline for new goals, and putting cities on track towards further improvements in their cycling policy. The CHAMP workshop illustrated how the CHAMP cities have taken their ambitions forward on the basis of the beforementioned analyses, while highlighting that being a champion in cycling brings along its own specific challenges.
The workshop presented the results of the innovative cycling measures that have been implemented in the respective CHAMP cities, as well as the strategic project conclusions and policy recommendations that can be adopted by other cities with cycling ambitions. Measures that were implemented in CHAMP include route based cycling promotion, creative bike parking solutions, bicycle accounts, innovative awareness raising and marketing campaigns for different target groups, and user involvement strategies.
The presentations from the workshop and the conference programme is available in pdf in the document section below!
