Abstract [en]

How can small-medium sized cities achieve high levels of walking, cycling and public transport whilst reducing use of cars? And how can such cities achieve further emission reductions by integrating renewable fuels and alternative forms of propulsion into their mobility strategies? This project makes use of qualitative research methods to explore how three European municipalities organise processes to devise strategies and plans to achieve sustainable mobility. Issues addressed by the research include the organisational processes and forms of participation used to develop strategies, select and implement measures, and gain political and societal support for transitions. What kind of methods or tools may be required to conduct research and draw meaningful conclusions from such analysis? Is it possible to compare apples and pears? And how can other small-medium sized cities, with lower performance in sustainable mobility, learn from these examples?
