The World Urban Forum (WUF), which is convened by UN-Habitat, is the world’s most important conference on cities. As a non-legislative forum open to all, it provides the opportunity for thousands of participants involved in all aspects of urbanization to share practices and knowledge on how cities are built, planned and managed.
Nel webinar verrà illustrata l'esperienza della città di Bolzano riguardo alle iniziative introdotte per rendere più sicuro il percorso casa-scuola degli alunni delle scuole elementari: i Nonni Vigili che presso gli attraversamenti pedonali aiutano i bambini ad attraversare in sicurezza, gli accompagnamenti pedibus, la chiusura temporanea di alcune strade in prossimità della scuola dette "strade scolastiche".

Sustainable mobility through child-friendly neighbourhoods - three examples from Munich, Zurich and Graz
Children are the future users of our cities. That’s why it’s important to sensitize them to the issues of sustainable mobility and child-friendly (public) spaces at an early age, thus promoting mobility behavior appropriate to the city. In the one-hour Webinar we’d like to adress this topic, using three examples implemented by the cities of Munich, Graz and Zurich within the the EU-Projekts Metamorphosis project.
