During this short but powerful training session participants gained insight and acquired skills in how to involve special interest groups in sustainable urban mobility planning. Target groups for this interactive training were professionals from Public Transport Authorities, professionals involved in SUMPS, traffic and transport, and all practitioners working on public involvement.
When planning for sustainable mobility, citizen involvement is key. In order to work in a socially inclusive way, all target groups should be represented. Special interest groups such as the elderly, immigrants, young children, young families or people suffering from a mental or physical handicap are often overlooked or hard to reach. How to engage these groups effectively in a planning process?
