Manual for the implementation of “School Pathways” at Sant Boi de Llobregat

The guide aims to facilitate and collect the implementation of the project “School Paths” that are developed in Sant Boi de Llobregat, so that all these initiatives follow the same line and pursue objectives agreed upon by the entire educational community of the municipality. In addition, it wants to give continuity and consolidate a series of actions for the improvement of the active mobility that has been promoted in the municipality in recent years from citizens, entities, and collectives.

This manual is a complex document. Here you can find on the one hand the methodology for the application of the School Paths program, and on the other hand, a first analysis of the educational centers. Regarding the latter, the manual focuses on the mobility dynamics, the physical environment which surrounds the educational centers, and it pays special attention to topics such as gender perspective, biodiversity, and citizen cooperation.

The project begins with the aim of continuing the study of School Paths that had recently been carried out with the participation of Riera de Ribes School among others. The proposal, therefore, reflects the desire of a significant part of the neighborhood residents to improve the conditions of Avinguda 11 de Setembre and Passeig de la Circumval·lació, axes with significant importance in connecting the old town center and various community facilities such as the healthcare center (CAP), the sports center, and the educational center itself.

The proposal starts from the idea of reversing the current situation where the car is the main protagonist of the space and giving this role to pedestrians and people who travel by bicycle or scooter. The implementation of a bike lane and the improvement of the current sidewalks, both in terms of accessibility and comfort, are the main objectives that have been pursued. In this line, there has also been a commitment to plant vegetation of different types to increase soil permeability levels and enrich the neighborhood’s biodiversity, while also improving the perceptual experience of everyone who takes these routes.
