The host for 2018

In 2018, the 16th CIVITAS Forum Conference will call Umeå in eastern Sweden home. The city is one of the country's leading examples of sustainable urban development and its Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, adopted in 2011, laid the foundations for extensive incorporation of green ideas into the transport system. 

Its ultra-fast charging electric bus initiative has been internationally recognised, receiving the CIVITAS Award for Technical Innovation in 2015, whilst numerous other sustainable mobility measures are being developed as part of Umeå's efforts to become a smart city. At the Forum, participants will be able to experience these first-hand.

This commitment to cleaner, better transport, and active involvement in the CIVITAS Political Advisory Committee make Umeå an ideal choice to host this year's Forum.
