The positive effects of sustainable mobility policies go well beyond environmental and monetary benefits. At the very centre of a sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMP) is the idea of quality of life. This includes the level of happiness experienced by citizens, their sense of community and connectedness to other people, their physical health and their mental well-being. Sustainable mobility can make a large contribution to a happy city with healthy citizens. It also helps to create vibrant public spaces where people can meet and local economy can thrive. Developing the offer of sustainable modes creates jobs and a well-balanced parking management strategy generates funds while managing the ever-growing pressure that cars put on public space. 

Language: English.
