Unit one introduces you to this learning platform, the course and your moderators. Unit two talks about the
current state with regard to congestion in urban settings, the FLOW approach, why a change is needed and which direction it needs to go. Unit three introduces several walking and cycling measures that have been demonstrated to
reduce (or at least not increase) congestion in European cities and beyond. Unit four describes to conceptual framework that underpins FLOW and how it can support decision making around congestion reduction. Unit five covers FLOW’s
multimodal definition of congestion and what that implies in practice (i.e. how to operationalise the definition) as well as determining a congestion threshold for your city. Unit six summarises and wraps up.
