Topic of the practice

Behavioural Change – travel behaviour and the reduction of CO2

Good Practice Information

To bike event aimed to engage the community of Viimsi Municipality and encourage them to change their mode of travel and reduce CO2 emissions. The event was held for one day in the Municipality of VIIMSI. 300 people joined a cycle ride over a 37 KM route around VIIMSI. Participants learned about the area with several stops at key points along this route. Participants also answered a survey questionnaire about their travel behaviour and possible changes.

Evidence of success

The event was well attended and gathered a lot of interest. It is a succesful example for organising a community activity focused on behavioural change and the reduction of CO2 . This practise had also been transferred and implemented by a TraCit project partner. In addition, the survey questionnaire, utilized during the event, was further developed as a result of critical evaluation from the TraCit project partnership.
