Public Involvement

Stakeholder and citizen involvement for improving the quality and acceptance of urban mobility measures.

When considering the quality of urban mobility decisions, most CIVITAS cities involve a wide range of stakeholders in the measure development process.

Through consultations, local communities are empowered and get a sense of ownership of results. At the same time, the level of interaction between decision makers and the target of their decisions is substantially increased, thus enhancing measure completeness, giving stakeholders a better understanding of the planned mobility measures and reducing later opposition to urban mobility.

Gender equality and mobility: mind the gap!

The second Policy Note by CIVITAS WIKI focuses on the topic of gender-sensitive mobility planning. In both, the International body of literature and transport planning, the gender dimension in mobility patterns and sustainability has received relatively little attention so far, even though, together with age and income, gender is considered a significant factor in accounting for differences in mobility behavior, with women recognized as being more likely to adopt sustainable travel behaviours than men.

A growing debate on this topic is ongoing at EU level and it has been re-launched within the CIVITAS Integrated Planning Thematic Group. Collaborative Interaction was set up on the CIVITAS Interactive Platform (http://www.civitas.eu/thematic-cooperation) and in the CIVITAS Urban Mobility LinkedIn Group, to collect further resources, links to other projects, practical city experiences and opinions and comments on the topic.

Policy Recommendations For EU Sustainable Mobility Concepts based on CIVITAS Experience

The Policy Recommendations present the main findings arising from the evaluation of the CIVITAS Plus Collaborative Projects (CPs), which ran from 2008-2012.

This publication was written under the auspices of the CIVITAS POINTER project, which supported five collaborative projects (CP s) implemented within the framework of the third edition of the CIVITAS programme. Evaluation and monitoring were the key stones of CIVITAS POINTER. Drawing from first-hand, corroborated statistical evidence gathered from participating cities, this publication presents the results of the CIVITAS Plus cross-site evaluation and policy assessment. These findings support the development of clear European-level policy recommendations that have the potential for being embraced by all European cities — not just those which make up the CIVITAS community.

The document seeks to identify factors that can boost the effectiveness and consistency of future strategies, thereby securing greater sustainability in urban mobility patterns. Policy makers are provided with contemporary facts for debating purposes, and a number of conclusions and recommendations based on lessons learnt from CIVITAS Plus are put forward.
