All good things must come to an end, including CIVITAS SUMPs-Up. Before it
does, the project invites you to join its final event on Wednesday 19 February,
09:30 – 13:30 CET, in Brussels (Belgium).
After over three years of working with local authorities and policymakers to
accelerate the uptake of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), SUMPs-Up has
wide-ranging results and a multitude of SUMP tools and publications to share
with Europe’s transport community.
Discover how these have helped shape Europe’s SUMP landscape and join
decision-makers, mobility experts and towns and cities to discuss SUMPs from a
wide variety of perspectives.
The talking points
The first half will examine European SUMP and transport policy and introduce key tools to assist practitioners and policymakers in SUMP development. As part of this, Herald Ruijters, Director, DG MOVE, European Commission, will discuss where SUMPs and urban mobility fit into the European Green Deal and efforts to tackle the climate crisis.
Following this, the recently launched SUMP Guidelines
, forthcoming SUMP Self-Assessment Tool and other SUMPs-Up products will be introduced by the SUMPs-Up team. The first half of the morning will end with an analysis of national SUMP frameworks.
In the second half, towns and cities from across Europe - all of whom took part in the SUMPs-Up Learning Programme - will take to the stage and talk participants through their unique SUMP stories and journeys.
What are their daily SUMP realities? What have they experienced to get to where they are today? What have they learned from other cities and being in the project? What support do they still need in the future from the national and European level?
Be inspired by what they are achieving in sometimes difficult situations and gain insight into what cities really need. A light lunch offers a further chance to exchange with transport and sustainable mobility peers from across Europe.
