Integrated urban plans

Every action during the project was a step towards more integrated and healthy urban planning in cities of Jurmala, Tartu, Stockholm, and in the Southwest Finland region. In Tartu and Southwest Finland, the project contributed into a greater process of local traffic planning. In Jurmala and Stockholm, the plans present a scalable solution for supporting cycling.

To include health and environmental aspects even better, the partners conducted HEAT tool calculations. The HEAT tool calculates health benefits as monetary value and provides a strong argument how cycling is economically sustainable.

In addition, different stakeholders were engaged to work to have more diverse perspective. The perspectives of professionals for example from health care and education, decision makers among city planners as well as ordinary citizens and NGOs were heard during the many workshops each partner hosted. Their voices enrich the plans.
