CIVITAS SUMPs-Up Final Event

19/02/2020

After over three years of working with local authorities and policymakers across Europe to accelerate the uptake of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), CIVITAS SUMPs-Up is slowly drawing to a close.

Before it does, it is organising a final event to share its wide-ranging results and multitude of SUMP tools and publications with Europe’s transport community.

Join the event on Wednesday 19 February, 09:30 – 13:00 CET, in Brussels (Belgium) to discover how the project has helped shape Europe’s SUMP landscape and hear decision-makers, experts and towns and cities discuss SUMPs from a variety of perspectives.  

The talking points

The morning will open with a series of interventions from European policymakers - including Herald Ruijters, Director, DG MOVE, European Commission - contextualising SUMPs within the wider world of transport and exploring why they and urban mobility are crucial to tackling the climate crisis.

Following this, the recently launched SUMP Guidelines, forthcoming SUMP Self-Assessment Tool and other SUMPs-Up products will be introduced by the SUMPs-Up team. The first half of the morning will end with an analysis of the status of national SUMP frameworks in Europe.

In the second half, towns and cities from across Europe and the SUMP spectrum will take the stage. Through a variety of interactive formats, attendees will discover the unique SUMP stories of participants from the project’s SUMP Learning Programme.  

How have their experiences in SUMPs-Up changed mobility planning in their cities? What have they learned from other cities? What is the daily reality of their SUMP-related work? What support do they still need from the national and European level?

A networking breakfast and lunch provide further chances to meet and debate on these crucial questions with SUMP peers from across Europe.

Registration and further information on the agenda and event venue will follow very soon, but in the meantime save the date in your diary! We hope to see you on Wednesday 19 February  in Brussels.
