The European Platform on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) is hosting its first ever European Conference, offering mobility planners and implementers from all over Europe an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the field of SUMPs.

Held in Sopot, Poland, from 12 to 13 June 2014, ‘Planning for a Liveable City’ will give delegates an opportunity to attend workshops on hot topics in urban mobility planning; exchange ideas and experience and network with fellow planners and other experts; and find out what European projects can offer local and regional authorities.
