Better cycle paths and footpaths – a benefit for society

We all know walking and cycling is good for our personal health. We also know it is beneficial for society when more people choose to walk or cycle. The tricky question so far has been assessing how much money can be saved by investing in better infrastructure for walking and cycling?

Translates into monetary terms

Now the answer is available. You can use HEAT (Health Economic Assessment Tool), an easy to use tool for assessing how much society can benefit by investing in better infrastructure for active mobility. HEAT translates the benefits to society into monetary terms, which makes it easier to integrate health aspects in traffic planning.

The tool will be presented at a seminar in Stockholm on December 1st, 13.00-16.00 by Dr Randy Rzewnicki from European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) and Dr Ulf Eriksson from Trivector. The seminar is arranged jointly by Cykelfrämjandet, ECF and Trivector and is almost fully booked. You can however listen to the seminar on: https://bambuser.com/channel/Trivector
