DYN@MO

CIVITAS DYN@MO

CIVITAS DYN@MO is an ambitious project with strategic importance to sustainable mobility planning in four dynamic European cities. DYN@MO is short for the project motto DYNamic citizens @ctive for sustainable MObility, which combines four European cities. This includes two leading cities, Aachen in Germany and Gdynia in Poland, as well as two learning cities, Palma de Mallorca in Spain and Koprivnica in Croatia. The mission of the CIVITAS DYN@MO cities is to strengthen sustainable mobility by promoting non-polluting lifestyles, fostering social interaction and collaboration on the basis of the new media, and implementing integrated implementation of innovative transport services for active citizens of all ages.

About CIVITAS DYN@MO

CIVITAS DYN@MO project logo

The strategic aims of CIVITAS DYN@MO are to develop 'Mobility 2.0' systems and services by applying web 2.0 technologies, implementing city and citizen-friendly, electric mobility solutions, using new electric and hybrid vehicles and engaging in a dynamic citizen dialogue for mobility planning and service improvement. The specific objectives of the project are outlined on four levels:

  • Strategic level: to create a culture for interactive mobility planning in which citizens and other stakeholders can actively participate in planning through innovative dynamic processes.
  • Technical level: to use clean, energy efficient, especially electric vehicles, and advanced ICT and ITS Systems as the basis of innovative transport services.
  • Service level: expose citizens and travellers in the cities to innovation hotspots with exciting new mobility services.
  • European level: to enable politicians and technical decision makers from CIVITAS DYN@MO cities to actively contribute to European exchange and learning through summer schools and trainings by developing competence centres for Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning and electromobility.

The project consortium consists of 28 partners in the four participating cities (Aachen, Gdynia, Koprivnica and Palma) supported by the Union of the Baltic Cities Commission on Environment (UBC EnvCom), Rupprecht Consult in Germany and Lund University in Sweden. UBC EnvCom is responsible for the module on dissemination and learning.

Implementing sustainable mobility

CIVITAS DYN@MO project

DYN@MO cities will implement altogether 30 innovative measures to strengthen sustainable mobility.

Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) are at the core of the project and represent a sound basis for mobility planning. The two leading cities Aachen and Gdynia will advance their planning culture and existing SUMPs, while Koprivnica and Palma will develop ambitious SUMPs, all involving extensively citizens and stakeholders via Web 2.0 applications.

Clean public transport remains the backbone of urban transport systems, while the cities have strong commitment to enhance the environmental performance and energy efficiency of their fleets within DYN@MO. Alternative fuels, such as Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and hybrid buses, as well as the increased use of electromobility in public transport and car sharing schemes, will help to accelerate the introduction of clean vehicles in the European market. Venturing into new technology and mobility options in addition to promoting new life styles will increase the people’s acceptance for mobility without a private car.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) together with intelligent transport systems (ITS) will be used throughout the project to improve service quality of public transport such as communication and maintenance of transport systems. This will also provide support for preparing, discussing and updating sustainable urban mobility plans, involving stakeholders and citizens in related processes.

The four cities will implement measures with a high degree of transferability across Europe and will enhance mutual learning by establishing Competence Centres on Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning and electromobility.
