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.

Following the recent call for a cycling strategy from the Luxembourg Presidency of the European Council, the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions, a new policy report prepared by the European Transport Safety Council and the intense advocacy work done by the European Cycling Federation, the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Safety and Security gave its contribution to the policy development and kept CIVITAS cities informed and actively involved in this very important topic. This webinar's main objective was to present the new policy developments in cycling and cycling safety and the ongoing actions as well as allowing the thematic group members and the overall CIVITAS community to bring their concrete local contributions and experiences on board. It contained two presentations (1) Safe Cycling - How Europe Can Contribute? (2) Why do cyclists feel safe in Gdansk?

Buses are the backbone of many European public transport systems and an important part of the municipality public transport fleet in the majority of EU Member States. This course provides municipalities, local decision makers and public transport operators with an overview of available bus technologies and guides them in the initial strategic choice of a clean(er) and more efficient energy bus concept.
E-course was developed in cooperation with TNO.

Cities in Europe are vital centres of economic activity, innovation and employment. However, they face increasing challenges to their mobility systems such as congestion, air pollution, ambient noise, CO2 emissions, road accidents and urban sprawl. To tackle these problems cities need to develop and implement coherent and challenging Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPS). This webinar presented two new tools that have recently been made available to cities to improve their mobility planning: (1) The Urban Transport Roadmaps online tool allows you to explore and identify appropriate sustainable transport policy measures, quantify the transport, environmental and economic impacts of these measures and consider an implementation pathway (roadmap) for the policy scenario. (2) EVIDENCE offers a range of tools and resources to make the argument for investing in sustainable transport and to assess its economic benefits. Such an enhanced knowledge will help facilitate effective integration of sustainable transport measures into urban mobility plans.

By making better use of data, urban traffic and transport can be improved and made more efficient and sustainable, and cities can become more liveable and attractive. There is evidence from different countries showing that the provision of open data delivers benefits: to travellers and users by improving their journey experience and saving them time, and to transport organizations and authorities by enabling them to operate more efficiently while demonstrating openness and transparency to those who - directly or indirectly - fund them. To encourage cities and (public transport) companies to open their data more than they do now and to show how this works in practice, in this webinar some stories were shared. In the webinar some nice and diverse examples were shown of how data can be translated into useful information that can then be used to enable certain services and measures. Claudio Mantero (from Horarios do Funchal) showed the example of sharing public transport data and displaying departure times in Funchal (Madeira) and Tommaso Bonino (from Bologna, SRW - Reti e Mobilità) showed the example of what can be done with cycling data (plan locations of 1,000 bicycle shelters!) and public transport data. Aviad Heilbrun (from the city of Tel Aviv-Yafo) and Torbjørn Barslett (from Ruter As in Oslo) presented how they collect and present open data (technical platform) and what is done with it. In Tel Aviv-Yafo two hackathons were organized (in 2014 and 2016) and this helped in building a community around open data and generating a lot of ideas on what to do with the data.

How can a city become a more accessible community for all of its citizens - and not simply by providing more wheelchair ramps and automatic doors - but actually serving all types of forms of mobility? Ensuring good accessibility for example to elderly and people with disabilities can solve lot of important daily issues for a large number of citizens. By exploring new approaches to this important issue a city can effectively improve the mobility for all of their citizens. Accessibility and social equity are at the center of this CIVITAS webinar. Three guest panelists shared their experiences and thoughts on the topic. Together these three panelists introduced new approaches, latest experiences and best practices that can help any city in evaluating their own accessibility strategy in city planning and urban mobility agenda.

Freight distribution is a vital part of life in modern cities and plays a relevant role within the whole urban mobility system. But, among the different components of mobility, urban freight logistics had and sometimes continue to have less emphasis in city policies and thus failing to contribute to the reduction of its negative impacts on urban liveability, like noise, pollution, congestion and reduced road safety. In order to support policy makers and urban mobility practitioners, the CIVITAS WIKI project recently released the Policy Note ‘Making urban freight logistics more sustainable’ which condensates successful approaches and solutions particularly addressed to small and medium-sized European cities. This free webinar has presented and discussed in a comprehensive way the outcomes of the Policy Note offering also an insight on some selected measures. One concrete experience from the CIVITAS city of Almada (PT) on how to plan and develop an efficient and sustainable urban freight logistics system has also been presented, together with the new CIVITAS Freight Cluster established for a better coordination of urban freight projects at urban level.

How bikes can be transported on bus lines? Why combining bikes with public transport and where this solution can be convenient and effective? Which normative, technical and operational aspects have to be taken into account? Several measures have been already developed and tested in different CIVITAS cities. From the first experiences in Krakow, La Rochelle and Funchal to more recent solutions implemented in Brno and Zagreb, the option of carrying bicycles on board public transport vehicles is not only limited to tram and metro or restricted to folding bikes but could be easily implemented also on bus networks.
