Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI) project invites you to save the date for the launch of its online indicator training course!

The course is aimed at representatives of urban areas that want to measure and track the performance of sustainable mobility and mobility professionals that would like to better understand the collection of urban mobility data.

Course tutors will provide expert insight to familiarise participants with the SUMI indicator set and to offer guidance in the process of applying the indicators with real-world examples.

During the course, mobility experts will be on hand to answer any questions participants may have about the indicators. Participants will also be able to access online course materials and an online forum at any point after the course finishes.

The course is structured along four main themes:

  • Introduction and Current Mobility Situation
  • Public Transport System
  • Transport Externalities
  • Integration and Next Steps

The course will conclude with a live webinar highlighting the performance of a custom-made benchmarking tool that will compare the performance of the cities who participated in the initial testing and revision of the SUMI indicator set.

The eCourse will be launched on 18 November and will be active until 13 December.

Participants can access the course on the Rupprecht Consult eLearning Platform.

Sustainable Urban Freight Transport: A Global Perspective

Life in the city relies on the smooth operation of urban logistics. Everything from retail to services, construction to waste collection rely on an efficient and reliable freight transport system. However, with the increasing pressures of urbanization, this has to be balanced with the environmental and social impacts caused by transport activity. This is the challenge of City Logistics, a field of study that has significant practical implications for the world and the cities we live in. It is not merely a question of what is involved, but what can be done about urban freight transport to improve it for the sake of economic efficiency, quality of life, and sustainability. From a systematic scientific foundation of the field, this course will take you on a journey to learn how city logistics is understood and practiced in cities around the world. Our instructors, members of a renowned global expert network, will teach you the basics of this highly complex social system. Using their experience in real-world projects, they will illustrate how the knowledge learnt in this course is applied across industry and the public sector. This course caters primarily to university students or professionals working in urban transport infrastructure planning or logistics management. Whether you are simply curious about the topic or you intend to develop a career in these fields, this course will give you the tools you need to understand the complexities of urban freight transport systems. The course emphasizes the theoretical foundation, the rigorous evaluation, and a multi-disciplinary approach to this complex area. Course participants will benefit from numerous case studies of best practice in selected cities around the world, in a variety of business settings. Our emphasis on the global perspective is particularly relevant, since an understanding of local culture and political climate is an important factor in the success of any city logistics intervention. The course will provide an avenue for students to learn from their peers about the challenges faced in their respective cities, and how to apply the principles learned to the challenges faced in their own cities.

What you'll learn:

  • To identify the main logistics challenges facing cities around the world
  • To understand the complex nature of urban freight transport systems
  • To evaluate freight traffic impacts
  • To explore the different approaches to solving urban freight transport problems
  • To identify the research methods used to develop and apply knowledge in this field

CIVITAS thematic course

In order to reduce motorised traffic, people will have to adopt a less car-dependent lifestyle. To manage this shift in mentality and behaviour, cities need to promote new forms of transport use and ownership. Car sharing is one way to reduce motorized traffic and carbon emissions and make a valuable contribution to more sustainable urban mobility. This e-course provides an introduction into the concept of car sharing in a variety of forms as well as experiences of different cities that already have implemented a car sharing scheme.

CIVITAS thematic course

Shared mobility or shared transportation such as bike and carsharing has grown impressively in recent years. Shared mobility is situated within the broader context of the so-called ‘sharing economy’. This comes in many shapes: from real-estate sharing, to property sharing to transportation sharing. This e-course provides a general introduction into the concept of shared mobility. It sets the broad context, explaining the motives and benefits, and illustrates that shared mobility is actually more than bike and car-sharing. There are specific e-courses both for bike-sharing and for car-sharing where these particular types of shared mobility are covered in more depth.

E-course was developed in cooperation with Mobiel 21.

CIVITAS thematic course

The delivery of goods makes up a significant share of traffic in European cities and is a major contributor to deteriorating air quality, rising carbon emissions and congestion. CIVITAS cities encourage the use of cleaner freight vehicles and are developing solutions to better coordinate freight logistics. More efficient freight deliveries can reduce congestion, lower emissions and free up space for sustainable modes.

GEF-SUTP Training Modules on Sustainable Urban Transport Planning (2013)

The Government of India (GoI) initiated the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), UNDP, and the World Bank. The objective of the SUTP is to facilitate the provision of urban transport infrastructure and services in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP), which is a shift towards public transport and other sustainable modes of travel. One major component of this project involves building capacity amongst practitioners in the field of urban transport in order to strengthen policy making, decision-making, project implementation and management, operations and project evaluation skills at the central, state and city levels. The capacity building component of GEF - SUTP aims to establish the needed capacity for regular skill development of practitioners, public officials, other public functionaries, and urban professionals in the field of urban transport to be able to find solutions to these problems and apply the skills to planning. Accordingly, a set of 10 subject modules, each for a group of topics on subjects associated with sustainable urban transport planning, were developed by EMBARQ India, GIZ-SUTP and UMTC. These 10 modules are structured in such a way so as to provide the necessary background together with case studies and relevant learning’s for India that will provide a base to build capacity amongst the practitioners, city officials, etc.
