COP27: national delegations receive PATH letter

At the COP27 climate summit, the Open Letter from the PATH coalition was handed over to multiple national delegations. The letter received over 400 signatures.

The Partnership for Active Travel and Health, of which Walk21 is part of, issued the letter to call for more investments in walking and cycling to achieve climate goals and improve people’s lives. Walking and cycling lack priority in the transport and mobility mix and the climate agenda, but are essential to achieving the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. 

Enabling a bigger share of urban trips to be walked and cycled is a quick, affordable and reliable way to significantly reduce transport emissions, traffic congestion and road casualties, and will also deliver improved public health, stronger economies and fairer societies.

The letter was handed over to delegations of Egypt, Ethiopia, Portugal, The Netherlands.
