Hur långt bär cykeln?: Gång och cykling i Västerbottens län - en studie av pågående arbete med regional gång- och cykelplanering
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The craft of planners are planning for a better future. Knowledge about climate change, environment, health and availability effects the trend towards less car dependent societies in favour of public transport and active transport like walking and biking. This study takes place in Västerbotten, one of Sweden’s most north provinces with a population of 260 000 inhabitants. It is a sparsely populated area with two dominant cities, the other municipalities are largely unpopulated. The issue in this study is to see what opportunities exist to create a regional plan for pedestrians and bicyclists. I have conducted a participatory observation during the meetings where civil servants were in creation of this regional plan.
