All good things must come to an end, including CIVITAS SUMPs-Up. Before it does, the project invites you to join its final event on Wednesday 19 February, 09:30 – 13:30 CET, in Brussels (Belgium).

After over three years of working with local authorities and policymakers to accelerate the uptake of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), SUMPs-Up has wide-ranging results and a multitude of SUMP tools and publications to share with Europe’s transport community.

Discover how these have helped shape Europe’s SUMP landscape and join decision-makers, mobility experts and towns and cities to discuss SUMPs from a wide 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 national SUMP frameworks.

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.
