Physical Activity Through Sustainable Transport Approaches (PASTA) is an EU-funded research project that gathers evidence to influence the sustainable development of East London.
The project aims to show how promoting active travel can lead to a healthier, more physically active population.

As part of the project, Newham residents, employees and visitors are being asked to take part in an online survey, which logs their travel habits over time. 

The information we receive will be part of the London case study which will evaluate behaviour change related to new infrastructure around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as well as all schemes which aim to promote walking and cycling in the surrounding boroughs.

The research is carried out under the coordination of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU), Institute for Transport Studies (Austria) with the support of an experienced consortium that includes:
  • the World Health Organization (WHO)
  • European Secretariat of ICLEI
  • Local Governments for Sustainability
  • Imperial College London (with the London Borough of Newham).
