GreenSAM creates a comprehensive toolbox for senior participation. Different tools are applied to and tested in the context of concrete green mobility challenges in the participating cities. This toolbox is meant to raise the know-how of public authorities in terms of providing public/collective mobility options that are accepted and used by senior citizens.
The toolbox will comprise concept papers for innovative participation tools and will be enriched by further contents:
• catalogue of quality standards, ensuring that the participation tools reflect latest findings from science and practice
• implementation guidance (manual to accompany cities during implementation with guidance on local stakeholder involvement, prevention of common risks during implementation etc.)
• impact assessments showing the effect of the tools on green mobility acceptance
As a basis for the toolbox, GreenSAM analyses the status quo in terms of participation and age-friendly mobility from the European as well as from the local perspective in selected BSR cities. This analysis includes good practices, risks, barriers and success factors as well as socio-cultural, legal and political conditions for participation processes and will be compiled in an “Atlas on participative approaches to age-friendly green mobility”.
