National reports on the current network of sport greenways in each country

The national report provides an overview and general conclusions on the current network of sport greenways in partner countries, along with specific information about the greenway networks in each represented country within the consortium (Spain, Belgium, Austria, Slovakia, Italy, Greece, and Portugal).


Handbook: 7 cases of successful sport activities in greenways

The handbook showcases seven selected cases of best practices in sports within greenways, representing each country in the consortium with EGWA as the lead beneficiary providing the research overview and each partner responsible for their respective best practice examples.


Interactive Map of Potential Greenways
