Three upcoming webinars from CIVITAS SUMPs-Up will provide mobility practitioners with insight into a series of crucial SUMP-related topics.

The first of these will look at the newly launched second edition of the EU SUMP Guidelines. 

With a fully updated SUMP cycle, more detail on the measure planning, financing and implementation aspects, and over 60 new good practice examples from cities all around Europe, the Guidelines summarise the latest knowledge in strategic mobility planning.

In addition, two supporting guides prepared will be presented. The first one looks at how local authorities can plan for electric road mobility solutions in urban areas in a SUMP context, whilst the second focuses on sustainable urban mobility planning for metropolitan areas.

Register here for the webinar, which takes place on Tuesday 22 October, 10:00-11.30 CET.

The webinar after this will focus on how to integrate Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) into urban planning, climate and energy strategies.

Participants will hear from the SIMPLA project, which aimed at harmonising Sustainable Energy Action Plans and SUMPs through capacity building activities for small- and medium-sized municipalities. In addition, the City of Lahti (Finland) will present its “Lahti Direction” document, which combines transport and land-use planning in a new way

The final webinar in the mobility practitioners’ series will focus on exploring different financing and funding options for sustainable urban mobility.

It will refer to a guide developed by SUMPs-Up that supports urban transport practitioners and other stakeholders to identify funding and financing options for the development of SUMPs, the implementation of measures, and the operation of transport services.
