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.

SOLUTIONS

This course examines different aspects of multimodal journey planning and examples of what has already been achieved in Europe. Best practice cases provided here will give an impression of the state-of-the-art, and we will examine barriers that currently prevent full integration of all modes and across all borders. In this context it must be noted that multimodal information is only one part that makes up a fully integrated transport systems.
