CIVITAS Award: “CIVITAS City of the Year”

CIVITAS City of the Year

Winner city: Bremen

The city of Bremen has lived up to the expectations of a true CIVITAS ambassador successfully covering all the 8 main policy pillars of the CIVITAS initiative. The trademark Bremen approach is traditionally founded on an active networking and a frantic exchange of information, which has involved cities and citizens at local, national and European level. What really strikes is the ability of Bremen to share its vast experience in promoting a new mobility culture through the presentation of good examples but also problems and obstacles. In doing so, the city likes to resort to innovative and unconventional communications means such the recent “James Bond” inspired public transport campaign.

Award for a CIVITAS non-demonstration city

Winner city: Dresden

The defining element of the city of Dresden is a clear political vision that has been consistently supported by a broad partnership of local institutions. This winning combination has enabled the city to accomplish many of its transport policy ambitions and to continuously monitor results throughout the process. Remarkable examples of the projects undertaken by Dresden include an innovative tram-based freight delivery, an award winning disabled-friendly public transport system, and a state of the art public transport fare integration.

Award for a CIVITAS demonstration city

Winner city: Kaunas

The city of Kaunas has been working toward an ambitious sustainable transport policy that has been able to turn around the local urban environment. The effort is all the more remarkable if one considers the difficult post soviet conditions in which Kaunas was no longer than 10 years ago. Noteworthy accomplishments of the local strategic plan include the thorough modernisation of the public transport fleet, the introduction of electric vehicles, the development of a bicycle network, the involvement of citizens in service improvement and the promotion of public-private partnership for service provision. A key success factor in Kaunas is the strong and continuously won political support, comprehensive evaluation and monitoring campaigns that have always backed policy implementation, and the increasing exposure of the city to European policies, programmes and experiences.
