ABSTRACT

Universities attract a large number of students and staff who generate thousands of journeys every day. This affects transport systems in European cities and contributes to increasing CO2 emissions, since a significant percent of the journeys are made by car. Therefore, there is a need to influence the academic community’s travel behavior and to encourage staff and students to reduce car journeys and to increase travel by public transport, bike, or by foot. This would result in reduction of the negative effects from car usage, including air pollution. This paper deals with the issue of university mobility and its impact on CO2 emission. It presents the activities and the outputs of the EU U-MOB LIFE project, which aims to provide European universities with innovative tools and support in the field of planning, implementation, monitoring and assessments of the effects of activities shaping sustainable travel behaviour of students and staff. The paper also presents the European Network for Sustainable Mobility at University, which serves as a platform for exchanging information and transferring knowledge of best practices on sustainable university mobility.

Keywords: air pollution, CO2 emission, university mobility, sustainable mobility
