CIVITAS Initiative

The role of the CIVINETs


CIVINETs are networks of cities and relevant institutions that promote the CIVITAS approach, and strengthen local, regional and national capacity around sustainable urban mobility. Not only are they fostering international cooperation and networking, but they are also facilitating knowledge exchange and capacity building. In this way, they are emerging as pivotal players in promoting sustainable urban mobility across Europe. The recent activities and accomplishments of each of the eleven CIVINETs are listed below. Should you be interested in collaborating or connecting with any of the CIVINETs active in your region, you are warmly encouraged to check out their individual page and contact them directly:
