Why participate?At the Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona (Faculty of Tourism and Geography) we’re carrying out a research about sustainable mobility transformations in European tourist cities. We consult the views of Barcelona’s residents and visitors of 60 years and older, with the objective to improve the use of active travel options for people of all ages. Our main interest is in your experience when cycling in Barcelona and whether, in your opinion, it contributes to your feelings of health, wellbeing and satisfaction with the urban environment.
So share your experiences with us! It doesn’t matter if you have cycled during your stay or if you cycle in your home country. All views matter!
What will we do?The research consists of two phases. First, we ask you to fill in a small survey about cycling in Barcelona and about your stay in the city. Second, and completely optionally, you are welcome to join a conversation about three things: 1) your experiences of cycling in Barcelona; 2) the modes of transport you have used throughout your life; 3) and your ideas about your mobility in future years. The conversation can be over coffee or lunch, during a guided tour through the city, or via a video call. If you have travel companions they are welcome to join!
Naturally, we will treat the data from these activities with the utmost security: see below for details about your anonymous participation and confidentiality.
When and where?Take the survey, which will take about 5-7 minutes (Survey) or fill in the registration form to meet us for a conversation: https://forms.gle/36GxAcuHWZGHH1768. At your convenience, we can meet in person or via video call.
