Learning and exchange
FLOW will train implementers from more than 40 European cities in applying the FLOW methodology and assessment tools, and will encourage experience exchange between local practitioners on evaluating effective congestion busting walking and cycling measures in various face-to-face and online formats. Through these activities, FLOW aims to support the Europe-wide take-up of congestion busting measures in public administrations.
Learning and exchange workshops for FLOW cities
FLOW’s Technical Support Partners will organise three annual large-scale awareness, learning and exchange workshops for the six Partner Cities, nine Exchange Cities and 30 Follower Cities . Using a combination of lecture and interactive experience reporting sessions, the workshops will cover the most effective walking and cycling measures, as well as the FLOW congestion assessment methodology. A main outcome of these workshops will be the creation of a solid network of cities that will continue to learn from one another.
Webinars on walking and cycling as congestion-busting measures
FLOW will organise three live online workshops targeted at technical planners from local authorities and transport planning consultancies. The webinars will be guided by FLOW’s technical support partners, and will cover the following topics:
1. FLOW methodology, congestion busting measures and modes
2. Cycling measures as a means of congestion reduction
3. Walking measures as a means of congestion reduction
Comprehensive online learning courses
Following each of the three webinars, FLOW will offer a series of in-depth, interactive e-learning courses on the FLOW Congestion Busting Methodology and integrating walking and cycling into transport modelling. These courses will be open to technical planners from local authorities and postgraduate students, and will be developed and moderated by FLOW’s Technical Support Partners. They will offer the unique opportunity to learn, discuss and exchange with FLOW’s experts as well as fellow practitioners across Europe.
