The date for this year's CIVITAS Forum Conference has been revealed. The 16th edition of Europe's foremost sustainable mobility event will take place from 19-21 September in Umeå, Sweden.
Hundreds of academics, city representatives, policymakers, and practitioners will gather to discuss the most pressing topics surrounding sustainable urban mobility and witness the pioneering solutions driving Europe's shift towards cleaner, better transport.
Participants will once again be able to take part in interactive workshops and sessions on the most urgent issues in mobility, enjoy interesting site visits, and mingle with Europe's most creative mobility minds. Many new exciting elements will also make their debut in the programme. Attendance is free of charge.
The host for 2018
Umeå, located in eastern Sweden, is one of the country's leading examples of sustainable urban development.
Its ultra-fast charging electric bus initiative has been internationally recognised, receiving the CIVITAS Award for Technical Innovation in 2015, whilst several other sustainable mobility measures are being developed as part of Umeå's efforts to become a smart city.
Umeå's dedication to cleaner, better transport and active involvement in the CIVITAS Political Advisory Committee makes it an ideal choice to host this year's Forum.
More information coming soon!
Further details on registration, the conference programme, and opportunities for exhibiting will follow in the near future.
