Registration and the call for contributions for the CIVITAS Forum 2018 are now open! Guarantee your place and submit ideas for sessions and activities at Europe's premier sustainable mobility event.

About the CIVITAS Forum 2018

Each year the event gathers up to 500 participants from a diverse community of policymakers, practitioners, academics, and city representatives.

Over three days, they discuss the most urgent mobility-related issues, share and learn from challenges, present state-of-the-art solutions, build partnerships, and witness sustainable urban mobility innovation in action.

This year's edition is taking place from 19-21 September in Umea, Sweden. Attendance is free.

Call for contributions

The call for contributions invites CIVITAS and non-CIVITAS cities, organisations, and projects to submit proposals for two types of sessions - thematic and take-up and transfer sessions. All activities should aim to connect people and share knowledge in interactive ways.

Session types

Thematic sessions will act as fora for lively discussion and engage with the most critical current topics in mobility. Presenters have the chance to show their outstanding, innovative examples of work across and beyond the CIVITAS Initiative.

The take-up and transfer sessions are the most interactive elements in this year's programme. These provide organisers with a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate their solutions and will enable participants to get hands-on with and experience cutting-edge urban mobility tools and methods.

Creative proposals are very much encouraged, particularly for the take-up and transfer sessions! We look forward to receiving your ideas and organising an event that showcases your work.
