The CIVITAS Forum Conference Secretariat invites speakers to contribute for the CIVITAS FORUM 2015 with presentations for parallel sessions and Pecha kucha sessions.

This year, the CIVITAS Forum Conference will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia between 7th and 9th October 2015. The theme of the Conference will be “Sharing the city” with a focus on sustainable urban mobility as an important drive to build an accessible and livable city for all, as well as to constantly improve the quality of urban life.

The discussions and exchanges of experiences, on how to share the physical and social space of the city in the best way possible will significantly contribute to further define and implement innovative, smart and sustainable mobility solutions in European cities and beyond.
