We dare to

To mark the launch of the CIVITAS e-publication "We dare to", an online peer-to-peer exchange event was organised. It featured the seven cities in the e-publication presenting their mobility measures in an interactive format. Six breakout rooms served as informal forums for discussing the measures with their respective cities.

Aachen and Madrid presented on e-mobility and public transport electrification; Bratislava and Sarajevo on public space re-allocation and tactical urbanism; Rethymno, Helsinki and Madrid smart solutions and smart planning; Aachen and Szeged on green mobility strategies with private companies; Bratislava, Sarajevo and Helsinki on boosting cycling with shared bicycle and cargo bike schemes; and Madrid and Rethymno on active modes and vulnerable road users.

CIVITAS SUNRISE e-learning material

What is co-creation, and how can it be used to begin transforming our neighbourhoods into more vibrant, livable spaces for all people who live, move, shop, attend schools, relax in them?

From 2-30 September 2019, the European project CIVITAS SUNRISE offered an interactive, self-paced e-course for practitioners in city administrations, who wanted to initiate and coordinate a co-creative process in one of their neighbourhoods.

Participants had the opportunity to learn directly from SUNRISE’s experts, who walked them through the co-creation process, highlighting the tools and strategies that have been applied in the six SUNRISE Action Neighbourhoods in Bremen (DE), Budapest (HU), Jerusalem (IL), Malmö (SE), Southend-on-Sea (UK) and Thessaloniki (GR).

A series of exercises guided participants through the process of creating their own, locally specific co-creation action plan for a neighbourhood of their choice. They were also able to discuss with other e-course participants through an interactive forum under the moderation of SUNRISE experts.

The e-course was free of charge and the seven units are now available here:

CIVITAS ECCENTRIC webinars

Living in the city without a car and travelling sustainably in an easy and accessible way? Cities can make this possible by installing mobility stations.

The City of Munich, like so many European cities, is seeing new housing development and new residential areas growing. The city wants to move away from the usual one parking spot per housing unit regulation, freeing up public space for other uses and supporting its citizens in making sustainable mobility choices at the same time.

As part of the EU-funded CIVITAS ECCENTRIC project Munich has set up several mobility stations. Mobility stations combine and provide a number of mobility services to ensure that suitable means of transport are available for any purpose at any time and offer a real alternative to car ownership.

What does a city need to consider when developing mobility stations? How to get the public on board with these new plans? Which results can be expected? During this practitioner’s webinar, the City of Munich shared its experience and dove into the lessons learned. The webinar was held on April 7th 2020.

SUITS Webinars

The SUITS webinar "on data management and exploitation for sustainable urban mobility", will advocate crowdsourcing as a sustainable and low-cost method to acquire mobility data and it will present a data modeling approach to minimise traffic delays. The webinar will also discuss approaches to effectively handle the potential for "big data" that may result from the proposed data collection methodologies.

The webinar will take place on 05 May 2020, at 2pm (CET).   

The detailed agenda can be downloaded here

Please note that prior registration for the webinar is essential. Register now!

Developing public policy for SUMP implementation, that balances the needs of citizen mobility with urban freight logistics and land-use conflicts, requires extensive traffic data collection and traffic monitoring. Only through the close and continuous monitoring of such a complex system (in a sustainable way) can this system be improved and the effectiveness of public policies be properly assessed.

This webinar will present tools and methodologies for the collection, modeling, management and exploitation of urban mobility data that can maximise the effectiveness and sustainability of urban transport measures and policies. The webinar is targeted at local authorities (mainly transport and mobility departments), as well as researchers and other stakeholders, whose work focuses on urban mobility planning, optimisation and policy-making.

The webinar will be moderated by Frederic Rudolph, project coordinator at the Wuppertal Institute. Speakers are:

  • Dr. Fotis Liotopoulos, Computer Engineer and General Manager of SBOING.
  • Dr. Liotopoulos will present a web-based tool for the selection and extraction of global user mobility traces (GPX files) from a database of over half a million traces. The tool, MyPolisLive.net is a web platform for real-time and historical urban traffic monitoring. The results of a pilot implementation of urban traffic monitoring through crowdsourcing, using MyPolisLive.net, in the city of Kalamaria (Greece).
  • Dr. Miriam Pirra, Researcher at Politecnico di Torino will provide concrete examples of how it is possible to exploit data collected using such tools at the municipality level. She will focus on the results of a pilot study in the city of Turin to show benefits and applicability of the data collection tools in the development of transport measures in European cities.
  • Mr. Csaba Matrahazi, Software Developer at LogDrill Ltd., Hungary is doing research and development projects by providing R&D background and documentation mainly in SCRUM. His main technologies are HTML5, CSS, JS, PHP, Python, C#, Git, GitHub, and Jira.

The webinar will be complemented by an e-learning course.  More information about the e-learning course will follow soon.

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.

CIVITAS PROSPERITY Webinars

Bridging the gap between SUMP-theory and practice is already a difficult exercise. Translating this in a clear and attractive political message seems even more so.

Carl Hanssens, vice-mayor for mobility of Sint-Niklaas (Belgium) talks from own experience on how a careful and thought-through stakeholder management process helped convey a positive political message and simultaneously built political buy-in for the write-up and execution of the city's SUMP. Learn more on how in this webinar.

CIVITAS PROSPERITY Webinars

A participatory approach has become one of the basic characteristics of sustainable urban mobility planning. Institutional cooperation and participation are continuous activities that should start early during the SUMP process definition phase.

This webinar will help you - (city) SUMP planning professionals - to:

  • basically understand better how communication and participation work.
  • become acquainted with the principles and concepts of stakeholder participation and citizen involvement in the development of SUMPs.
  • comprehend the role of drivers, challenges and common practises of ‘good’ participatory processes; and finally
  • raise participation in SUMP a level higher.
