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.

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.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD, and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Mobility Management' organised a webinar on 22nd January 2013 about how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and how to assure basic mobility for all citizens by providing mobility training for specific target groups. Training is often associated with children and youngsters. Many adults however miss the basic knowledge or skills to use certain transport modes, at risk of social isolation. Through five presentations and a 15-minute discussion, this webinar looked at training initiatives that enable different target groups to master and choose the mode of transport that best fits their needs and trip purposes. Both CIVITAS and non-CIVITAS experiences were presented.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD, CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Less car intensive lifestyles' held a first webinar on how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and towards clean and energy efficient transport by addressing children and young adults on 2 March 2012. When walking and cycling, children become more aware of their surroundings and develop road safety skills as well as improve their ability to anticipate other road users. Furthermore, walking and cycling contribute to the recommended amount of daily exercise that children and young adults need. The dependency on the private car needs to be reduced if cities are to achieve cleaner and better transport. Through five presentations and a 15-minute discussion, this webinar looked at promoting car-reduced and car-independent lifestyles, which seek to make more sustainable use of the car through car-pooling, car-sharing and the use of non-motorised modes such as cycling and walking.
