Non-motorised Transport is the basic way of moving.

Due to functional and environmental needs, cities not only in the industrialized world, start to promote non-motorised traffic in order to solve their environmental and transport problems. Moreover it is obvious that in the mega cities the growing transport can not be conducted by cars. Nevertheless the common perception of how we move has adapted a car driver´s perspective. Transport engineers and urban planners have been adapting the urban infrastructure to the needs of the individual motorised transport. The social status of the car is so strong that non-motorised traffic has become a symbol of poverty.

In the last ten years the perception in the western world has started to change. Young urban professionals have realised the advantages of walking cycling and their priorities and values are diversifying. People prefer to spend the money on other things than expensive cars.

The following Media will give a brief overview over the topics of Module II “Walking and Cycling”
