This is what we are going to do
Our ambition is to create an accessible and liveable campus. To achieve this, we are using the STOMP principle to guide us. The STOMP principle (‘stappen, trappen, openbaar vervoer, mobiliteitdiensten, privé auto’. In English: walking, cycling, public transport, mobility services, private car) gives priority to more sustainable forms of mobility (walking, cycling, and public transport) and less priority to less sustainable forms of mobility (such as the car). As a minimum, we are committed to doing the following:
- Increase the amount of bicycle parking options on campus and make them more accessible.
- Expand our sustainable international travel policy. We will no longer fly to destinations within seven hours of Nijmegen, and we will start using a travel agency that books international travel as sustainably as possible.
- Facilitate a system that allows employees to easily plan, book, pay for and claim the costs of sustainable travel within the Netherlands.
- Consult authorities and transport operators as part of Sustainable and Accessible Heijendaal to improve cycle routes to the campus, improve public transport and increase the range of mobility services.
- Make our vehicle fleet (all vans used to transport materials around campus) more sustainable: replace diesel vehicles with electric ones.
- Facilitate places where people can park and rent shared scooters and bicycles.
What can you do to help?
- Do you drive to work, and is your commute less than 15 kilometres? Then why not give an e-bike a go! You can try it out for free.
- In the autumn, you can also take part in the Mobility Survey and tell us how you currently travel and how you would like to travel in the future. Once the survey has been launched online, we will provide a link on this page.
