Interreg ‘School Chance’ project kicks off in Girona

Three member cities of the Eurotowns network – Girona as lead partner, Gävle and Reggio Emilia – are participating in the Interreg SCHOOL mobility CHAllenge in regioNal poliCiEs (School Chance) Project with five other European cities.

School Chance is a European project funded by the European Regional Development Fund through Interreg Europe Programme, under the priority axis Low Carbon Economy. The project started in January 2017 and will see partners working together for 5 years, until December 2021.

The general aim of this project is the reduction of carbon emissions generated by school mobility. Nowadays, school traffic accounts for about 15% of the total traffic at urban level, contributing to the worsening of mobility, pollution and health problems. School Chance will focus on policies that support cleaner transport modes and promote alternative means for childrens’ mobility to and from school, working to develop an integrated set of tools to incorporate school mobility strategies at regional level.
