PUSH: CALL FOR NEIGHBOURHOODS: Join the MUV network for a new urban mobility

MUV stands for Mobility Urban Values and is an EU-funded project that promotes a shift towards more sustainable and healthy mobility choices by engaging in a positive way with local communities, local businesses, policymakers and Open Data enthusiasts.
 
An Open Call to join the network of MUV neighbourhoods around Europe (Amsterdam, Barcelona, Fundao, Ghent, Helsinki, Palermo) has been recently launched.
 
The innovation of MUV
MUV levers behavioural change in local communities using an innovative approach to improve urban mobility: changing citizens’ habits through a game. Mobility and environmental data gathered via the mobile app and the monitoring stations help policymakers to enhance planning processes and civic hackers to build new services and improve the quality of life in cities.
 
Who can join?
Citizen groups, local public or private organisation, city governments, university or research centres from all kind of neighbourhoods – rural and urban, sparse and populous, low-tech or smart.
 
Why become a MUVerhood?
If you want to improve mobility habits in the area where you live and/or work in a more effective way, than MUV is the way forward. MUV creates solutions that are co-created with the local communities of
citizens and stakeholders.
 
What to expect?
Integration of new neighbourhoods into the MUV network will take place through a shared agenda for local implementation, with a common schedule starting in January 2019 and lasting approximately one year. This will include:
  • Co-creation sessions to develop local visions and mobility strategies.
  • Co-design sessions to customize the MUV technological tools: MUV app, web dashboard and environmental monitoring stations.
  • Cross-network workshops to share experiences and strategies with other neighbourhoods.
Interested?
Complete the online form and one of the partners of the MUV consortium will contact you soon.
Deadline for submissions: October 15th 2018.
