Connecting active mobility & health

Europeans move too much without moving enough these days. Many rely on cars for the shortest of trips. This comes at a cost to our health and the public purse. Physical inactivity is a leading risk factor for ill-health in the European Region; resulting in 1 million deaths per annum.

The EU-funded project PASTA - Physical Activity Through Sustainable Transport Approaches - carried out a longitudinal study in seven European cities on the link between active mobility and health.
