Since 2015 we have had an international roadmap to guide countries into a more sustainable development pattern. The SDGs will also be decidedly relevant to shaping the future of cities and urban agglomerations, turning them more socially inclusive, healthier, and less harmful to the environment. That agreement is global, yet the actions to support it will vary according to local particularities. Moreover, it will affect different sectors of human activity. The transportation sector is alone responsible for the largest share (27%) of global greenhouse gas emissions. Conversely, active travel can curb the environmental impacts of the transportation sector. Additionally, walking and cycling are associated with a significant increase in health and well-being. Therefore, we claim that a sustainable urban future is unthinkable unless radical changes in mobility systems can transform the existing urban environment into places for people in the present. AMBER welcomes contributions from various fields related to active mobility and the built environment research - such as transportation sciences, planning, urban design, health promotion, social sciences, etc. It explores the potential contribution of active mobility to the urban transition process. AMBER aims to become a platform to promote exchange between scholars, practitioners, the public sector, and civil society to advance and disseminate research in the intersections of active mobility and the built environment to boost the change.
