CIVITAS Webinar: Mobility planning in polycentric and cross-border regions

06/05/2015

Planning urban mobility is a complex undertaking for any city, even more so when urban functions, people and mobility are scattered across different towns of polycentric or cross-border regions.

Indeed, planning mobility in polycentric and cross-border regions requires the coordination of policies and services of many stakeholders – transport and urban planners, local and regional policy makers, urban and interurban public transport providers – within and across different centres and administrative boundaries.

Organised on the 6th May 2015 by the CIVITAS Integrated Planning Thematic Group, in collaboration with the Poly-SUMP and the PUMAS projects from the European Platform of SUMPs, the webinar debated on the methodology to develop a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for regions with a polycentric or cross-border profile, bringing together key stakeholders to initiate dialogue across institutional and geographic boundaries.

First, the Poly-SUMP methodology for urban mobility planning in complex regions was presented. Then, two different experiences from cities and regions of the CIVITAS Forum Network were offered: Thessaloniki and Central Macedonia (EL), Nova Gorica (SI) and Gorizia (IT) provided an outlook on the challenges and potentials of planning mobility respectively on a polycentric and cross-border region.
