CIVITAS ECCENTRIC webinars

The second CIVITAS ECCENTRIC thematic webinar looked at the topic of inclusion of peripheral neighbourhoods in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).  

This topic is crucial, but remains largely unexplored. Suburban areas have remained largely unaddressed in terms of dealing with high demand for passenger and freight traffic.

Moreover, due to increasingly high urban centre developments, additional pressure hast been imposed on suburban areas, which then face specific challenges of:

  • Becoming sufficiently appealing to avoid an unnecessary traffic flow towards the city centre;
  • Providing sustainable and high quality mobility options to enable and encourage car independent lifestyles; and
  • Planning the urban future according to carbon neutral mobility principles.
This webinar from CIVITAS ECCENTRIC shines light on these vital factors.

CIVITAS ECCENTRIC webinar

Vulnerable groups such as children, older people, or people with disabilities depend on public transportation and accessible public space to stay mobile. Women are also more regular users of public transport than men.

Therefore, sustainable urban mobility planning needs to provide inclusive and accessible means of mobility for all of these groups.

The first CIVITAS ECCENTRIC thematic webinar offered insights from mobility planners and practitioners into different aspects of the topic:

  • Solutions and mobility measures addressing gender issues;
  • Improving walkability for all;
  • Offering better mobility for children and the elderly.

The city of Umeå (Sweden), host of the CIVITAS Forum 2018, shared their experiences of addressing gender issues in their city.

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. This 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.
