CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The third CIVITAS SUMPs-Up e-course focuses on how to ensure that sustainable urban mobility planning is a strategic long-term process. The SUMP should not be seen as yet another plan that. SUMP should have clear objectives and a set of SMART targets that have been selected based on the vision for mobility. It should be planned carefully how it will be measured whether the targets are being as well as the evaluation of the planning process itself.

SUMP should be also integrated with other related processes. How to harmonize SUMP with strategies of alike sectors in order to reach an integrated perspective for sustainable cities, how to create links between transport, energy and pollution reduction when planning, and what are the benefits are crucial aspects in the SUMP development which planners should not overlook. To ensure successful implementation of SUMPs necessary resources should be secured and risks and mitigation strategies identified. Finally, “quick-win” measures that help to gain political commitment should be identified.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The second CIVITAS SUMPs-Up e-course focuses on the importance of co-creating the process and the plan together with different stakeholders.  It gives advice on how to elaborate a public participation and communication strategy and how to integrate participation in the overall process. The course presents concrete examples of methods and tools that can be used in workshops and events with different stakeholder groups.

Developing a common vision with citizens and other interest groups is a crucial start of the SUMP process. It creates ownership and acceptance, when citizens´ ideas and view point are taken into account. Using the community´s knowledge can provide valuable input for the city administration in developing their SUMP.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The first CIVITAS SUMPs-Up e-course focuses on the phase preparing well in the SUMP cycle. It gives advice how to initiate the SUMP process. Before elaborating a SUMP strategy and selecting the right measures it is important to understand the local, regional and national framework influencing the SUMP preparation and implementation as well as to analyse the current mobility situationand planning practices.

Cooperation and participation are one of the main principles of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning. The course gives advice what should be taken into account when setting-up a project management structure and gives tips how to map different urban mobility stakeholders that should be involved and promote cooperation across sectors and borders.

TIDE: Non-motorised transport

Even if the route from home to destination is safe and comfortable for cycling, if the bike parking is insufficient or unsafe, people will be discouraged from cycling for transportation. This course will look at different types of bike parking and what types are appropriate for different locations. It will also address the value to businesses and to employers of providing bike parking for their customers and employees.

TIDE: Cross-cutting themes

The TIDE project addresses a range of innovative measures in transport (pricing measures, non-motorised transport, data and traffic management, electric mobility, public transport organisation). This course addresses how innovations in each of these areas fit into the larger picture of sustainable urban mobility planning in your town, city or region.

TIDE: New pricing measures

Both parking prices and parking problems vary greatly among cities, but no city is entirely free of parking challenges. Charging for something that was previously free can be an unpopular, but necessary, decision for a city to take. Using examples from cities that have successfully implemented new parking pricing schemes, this course will address issues such as: How can you increase citizen acceptance of a new (or higher) parking charge? Is it fair to make drastic changes in transport conditions? How do you find the “correct” level of charging? And what is the role of enforcement in parking pricing?

TIDE: Public transport organisation

Increasing suburbanisation has created a need for neighbouring authorities to collaborate in providing public transport by forming metropolitan public transport authorities. This course will address the potential scope of MPTA activities, including alternative approaches and voluntary vs. obligatory PTAs. It will provide examples of successful MPTAs and address potential legal barriers and political obstacles.

TIDE: Electric mobility

Electric vehicles in the logistics sector are a matter for the private sector. But does this mean there is nothing a city can do to encourage electric delivery vehicles? This course addresses the question of how cities can work with the private sector and what role the public sector can/should play in encouraging and supporting further electrification in the logistics sector.
