CIVITAS SUMP-PLUS has launched a call for applications for cities to join its Follower Cities Group.
The project is working in six co-creation "city labs" across Europe to put mobility at the heart of sustainable urban transformations. The cities chosen to be part of the new Follower City Group will participate in a series of knowledge transfer activities linked to the six labs.
The Follower Cities will follow the labs closely, learn from the leading cities, and offer them feedback concerning their activities. After this observation period, Follower Cities will deliver an action plan outlining how they can go about developing and applying the related measure(s).
Beyond this, the Follower Cities will attend site visits and workshops, webinars, and e-courses; these will enrich and deepen their knowledge of sustainable urban mobility planning.
In total, 16 planning authorities will be chosen to become members of the group, whose activities will start in early 2021. All applicants must be legal entities established in a Member State of the European Union, or within an associated country of the Horizon 2020 programme.
