CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The third CIVITAS SUMPs-Up e-course focuses on how to ensure that sustainable urban mobility planning is a strategic long-term process. The SUMP should not be seen as yet another plan that. SUMP should have clear objectives and a set of SMART targets that have been selected based on the vision for mobility. It should be planned carefully how it will be measured whether the targets are being as well as the evaluation of the planning process itself.

SUMP should be also integrated with other related processes. How to harmonize SUMP with strategies of alike sectors in order to reach an integrated perspective for sustainable cities, how to create links between transport, energy and pollution reduction when planning, and what are the benefits are crucial aspects in the SUMP development which planners should not overlook. To ensure successful implementation of SUMPs necessary resources should be secured and risks and mitigation strategies identified. Finally, “quick-win” measures that help to gain political commitment should be identified.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The second CIVITAS SUMPs-Up e-course focuses on the importance of co-creating the process and the plan together with different stakeholders.  It gives advice on how to elaborate a public participation and communication strategy and how to integrate participation in the overall process. The course presents concrete examples of methods and tools that can be used in workshops and events with different stakeholder groups.

Developing a common vision with citizens and other interest groups is a crucial start of the SUMP process. It creates ownership and acceptance, when citizens´ ideas and view point are taken into account. Using the community´s knowledge can provide valuable input for the city administration in developing their SUMP.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The first CIVITAS SUMPs-Up e-course focuses on the phase preparing well in the SUMP cycle. It gives advice how to initiate the SUMP process. Before elaborating a SUMP strategy and selecting the right measures it is important to understand the local, regional and national framework influencing the SUMP preparation and implementation as well as to analyse the current mobility situationand planning practices.

Cooperation and participation are one of the main principles of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning. The course gives advice what should be taken into account when setting-up a project management structure and gives tips how to map different urban mobility stakeholders that should be involved and promote cooperation across sectors and borders.

Sustainable urban mobility planning is a way of tackling transport-related problems in cities more strategically. The development and implementation of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan aims to reduce negative impacts of transport, improve accessibility and provide high-quality, multi-modal and well-integrated mobility and transport. This course offers an overview of the SUMP concept and its benefits, describes the ever-growing importance of SUMPs in Europe, looks at the procedual elements of the SUMP cycle and identifies the key challenges arising in sustainable urban mobility planning.

CH4LLENGE

Development of effective measures to tackle identified transport and mobility objectives is vital for successful sustainable urban mobility planning. Yet there are a range of challenges to well-informed development of packages of measures. Cities can limit themselves to pre-conceived solutions, may focus on supply-side rather than demand-side polices, and can be unaware of the potential of novel solutions. This course explores measure selection in SUMP process, examining how measures and measure packages can be identified and critically evaluated as a response to objectives, problems, and as part of a process of moving towards more sustainable mobility practices.

Institutional cooperation comprises collaboration and joint working within and across organisations in order to develop and implement a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). Institutional relationships are various and thus cooperation must be understood as occurring within networks of organisations. Such cooperation may require the sharing of objectives, knowledge, resources, powers or consent between several actors. This course intends to explain how to build a pragmatic cooperation with actors and how to identify ideas, principles and policies that help to deliver a SUMP that is accepted and effective in practical and financial terms.
