CH4LLENGE

Institutional cooperation comprises collaboration and joint working within and across organisations in order to develop and implement a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). Institutional relationships are various and thus cooperation must be understood as occurring within networks of organisations. Such cooperation may require the sharing of objectives, knowledge, resources, powers or consent between several actors. This course intends to explain how to build a pragmatic cooperation with actors and how to identify ideas, principles and policies that help to deliver a SUMP that is accepted and effective in practical and financial terms.

CH4LLENGE

Sustainable urban mobility planning is a way of tackling transport-related problems in cities more strategically. The development and implementation of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan aims to reduce negative impacts of transport, improve accessibility and provide high-quality, multi-modal and well-integrated mobility and transport. This course offers an overview of the SUMP concept and its benefits, describes the ever-growing importance of SUMPs in Europe, looks at the procedual elements of the SUMP cycle and identifies the key challenges arising in sustainable urban mobility planning.

Eurotransport webinars

The accelerated use of contactless technologies and the convergence of multiple applications demands secure, proven and stable technologies which also have the flexibility to benefit from future technology and application trends. The Sistema Único de Boleto Electrónico card (the SUBE card) has recently been an outstanding success in Argentina. This webinar will show how Nacion Servicios – the public transport operator responsible for SUBE’s AFC system – migrated its automatic fare collection system to include a new level of high security, allowing the possibility of the future expansion of its operation to other cities in Argentina. Eurotransport’s forthcoming webinar, hosted by NXP Semiconductors, will offer a platform from which delegates can learn about SUBE’s challenges, experiences and solutions in upgrading, using NXP’s MIFARE Plus product family – and the wide range of application possibilities that opened up through this transition. The webinar will consist of two 15-20 minute presentations, as well as a Q&A session where delegates have the opportunity to ask questions directly to our speakers. Presentations will come from NXP Semiconductors’ Miguel Padula – Business Development Manager South America AFC & Banking, and Johannes Grüll – Product Marketing Manager MIFARE Classic & MIFARE Plus. Miguel is responsible for developing AFC and Banking business in South America, supporting main AFC migration and banking convergence in the region. Johannes is globally responsible for the go-to-market and pricing strategy for the MIFARE Classic and MIFARE Plus product families. Johannes is engaged in different application segments from access management and public transport to gaming and many more.

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.

How can a city promote active travel for school children? By giving them safe routes to school and promoting those routes. In order for this to work, cities should cooperate very closely with teachers, parents and other stakeholders. On 26 January the province of Granada and the city of Malaga presented the lessons learned from their safe routes to school programmes. With the support of the CIVITAS Activity Fund, the provincial authority of Granada founded the Work Group for Child Mobility. The group was comprised of technicians and political members of the city councils, teachers, parents, and other stakeholders of those municipalities interested in the implementation of the Safe Routes to School programme. They organised several workshops in 8 municipalities. The city of Malaga is working with 10 schools, and they implement different routes for pedestrians and cyclists. It is a participative project where they involve the entire school community. In addition they are supporting an app to facilitate the coordination with families.

SUTP Webinar

The amount and quality of energy (in particular fossil fuels) consumed by motorised vehicles is not only a burden to our atmosphere, but also generates airborne pollutants like sulphur, nitrogen oxides or carbon monoxide - to name a few. Those pollutants have severe impacts on our environment and our health - particularly in heavily populated urban areas. The Avoid-Shift-Improve (ASI)-approach helps to counteract air pollution. While it is necessary to plan traffic in a smart way and shift it to more clean modes of transport, fuel economy, vehicle and fuel standards are essential to further reduce and limit air pollution. While air pollution is still a serious problem, the introduction of EURO-standards for fuel as well as vehicle taxation, emission standards and technologic solutions lead to a significant reduction of air pollution in European cities.

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.

SOLUTIONS

Today, many trips that are carried out using conventional cars could be done by light electric vehicles (LEVs). This would make urban transport much more sustainable. Emissions would “evaporate”, congestion would be reduced, transport would become safer, quieter and cheaper and public health would improve. Overall, replacement of car trips by LEV trips would make our cities much more liveable.
