The CIVITAS Secretariat invites European Cities to submit an application for hosting the CIVITAS Forum’s next annual conference in 2016!
The CIVITAS Forum Conference is the annual flagship event of the CIVITAS Forum Network of cities as well as a very important conference in the urban mobility field. The event typically takes place in the autumn of each year. The 2016 conference will be the 14th Forum Conference of the CIVITAS Initiative. The upcoming forum will be held in Ljubljana, following the fora hosted in Casablanca, Brest, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Funchal, Malmö, Krakow, Bologna, Kaunas, Burgos, Nantes, Rotterdam and Graz, where the series started in 2003.
As always, the conference gathers CIVITAS Forum city network representatives and European politicians on the one hand, and experts in the field of urban mobility on the other. Typically around 400 persons attend the event, which offers significant visibility to the host city to demonstrate and share success and achievements in the field of clean and sustainable urban transport.
