The constitution of the European Greenways Association was pronounced In May 1997, within the groundwork of the First European Conference on Soft Traffic and Railways Paths.

Greenways are communication routes reserved entirely for non-motorised journeys, developed in an integrated appearance which enhances both the environment and quality of life of the surrounding area. These routes should meet gratifying standards of width, gradient, and surface condition to ensure that they are both user-friendly and low -risk for users of all capabilities. In this respect, canal towpaths and disused railway lines are a highly suitable resource for the development of greenways.

Greenways provide a series of common aspects like Ease of passage, Safety, Continuity and Respect for the environment. The greenways should have material available such as maps and brochures, on the passage itself and on access to nearby sites of interest.
