The EU-funded project PASTA - Physical Activity Through Sustainable Transport Approaches - aims to connect transport and health by promoting active mobility in cities (i.e. walking and cycling, in combination with public transport use) as an innovative way of integrating physical activity into our everyday lives. The project will hold its final workshop at the ICC by bringing together a multi-disciplinary consortium of leading experts in policy, research and practice from across Europe.
THE PEP, run jointly by UNECE and the WHO Regional Office for Europe, addresses basic questions of how best to move around in cities. The Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme – makes the link between
transport, health and the environment. At the ICC, THE PEP will hold a workshop on ministerial level (“Relay Race”).
