CIVITAS webinars

In this webinar, the key components of the CIVITAS evaluation process are discussed. Dirk Engels, Transport and Mobility Leuven, presents the key elements of this innovative approach.

This centres on conducting both process and impact evaluations. By doing so, it is possible to understand the barriers to and drivers of a measure's implementation, as well as the effect that it has.

Through its six impact categories, the CIVITAS approach tells the full story of mobility measures, one that extends beyond pure facts and figures.

CIVITAS SUNRISE Webinars

Zaragoza Logistics Center (ZLC), project partners of CIVITAS SUNRISE, organised a webinar on how to adapt Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) to the neighbourhood level.

The points addressed were:

  • What is a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP)?
  • Benefits
  • Process of a SUMP: from step 1 to 11
  • Good practices examples
  • Q/A round

Key take away: Integrating not only passengers but also freight in the SUMP development decreases noise, emissions and congestion in the neighbourhoods, improves road safety, enhances business economic development, and improves the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the transportation of goods.

CIVITAS PROSPERITY Webinars

This webinar demystifyed monitoring and evaluation in SUMPs, explaining in simple terms what to measure and how, and how to set meaningful targets, giving real life examples from actual SUMPs.  The overall message was that monitoring and evaluation is simpler than you might expect and does not always require gathering large amounts of data.

Meeting of the Minds

Parking is a particularly tough issue for cities across the globe. Municipalities, both large and small, face the challenge of balancing the needs of a range of stakeholders - residents, tourists, pedestrians, businesses, schools, and others - who all have different parking demands. The city of Bad Hersfeld, Germany, sought to change how it handles traffic for both residents and visitors, particularly during special events.

A small city of approximately 30,000 just outside of Frankurt, Bad Hersfield is well known for its festivals, particularly the Bad Hersfelder Festspiele. The city's Mayor, Thomas Fehling, implemented a more streamlined approach to parking management with the help of smart parking IoT solutions.

In this webinar, Mayor Fehling will share how the city deployed this new technology, which reduced the amount of time drivers searched for parking, lessened congestion on the roadways, lowered emissions, and increased efficiencies across its open-air parking lots. He will be joined by Thomas Hohenacker, Cleverciti Systems CEO, who will share some of his key insights from his work deploying parking solutions across cities in the Middle East, Europe and the US.Less

EIP-SCC Sustainable Urban Mobility Action Cluster Webinar

Are you interested in smart mobility? Would you like to know more about 5 European initiatives that roll out new, smarter and sustainable solutions in European cities?

The EIP-SCC Sustainable Urban Mobility Action Cluster (EIP-SCC SUM AC) is pleased to invite you to a webinar taking place on-line on 20th June 2018, from 13:00 to 14:30 CET.

This webinar will give you the opportunity to hear about the cities and companies that are leading 5 actions as part of the European Innovation Partnership in Smart cities and communities. Their aim is to become the leading platform for understanding city needs, for bringing stakeholders together, building the tools that support an innovation pipeline, and directly supporting individual networks and projects that are en-route to realisation.

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Action Cluster focuses on five Initiatives:

  • Urban Air Mobility (UAM) – lead by Airbus, it aims to  contribute to bringing urban mobility into the third dimension – the airspace (flying vehicles)– by offering a marketplace-driven forum of diverse mobility stakeholders (ground and air) to jointly work towards city-centric demonstration projects at intra-city and inter-city (regional) level;
  • Intelligent Mobility For Energy Transition (IMET) – lead by Nissan, it aims to create a mechanism for the development of sustainable energy models through e-mobility solutions as an innovative product for the development of smart cities;
  • New Mobility Services (NMS) – lead by the Province of Noord-Brabant/ Brabanstad, it aims to build a common ground for New Mobility Services, supporting service replication and cooperation between cities and private sector;
  • E-Vehicles for Smart Cities and Communities (EV4SCC) – lead by Urban Foresight, it is mobilising a Europe-wide dialogue on the potential for electric vehicles to be integrated with smart city initiatives and aims to create the world’s largest marketplace for smart electric mobility solutions;
  • Alternative Fuels Special Vehicles (AFSV) – lead by Aebi-Schmidt, it aims to create a guideline that draws on the very latest and most appropriate technologies to recommend to cities to help steer a clear path in order to achieve the zero emission target in the field of special vehicles.

Participation to the webinar is free. If you wish to participate, please register here.

SUMPs-Up City Webinar Presentations

In the latest webinar from the CIVITAS SUMPs-Up city webinar series, the city of Donostia-San Sebastian in Spain discusses the development and implementation of its Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP).

The process of changing the mobility culture in the city started 25 years ago, and has been met with opposition along the way. Through engagement and innovative measures, however, this has been overcome.

Donostia-San Sebastian is one of the SUMPs-Up city partners.

Webinar

Research conducted over the last few decades in many western countries confirms that there is a mutually reinforcing relationship between transport poverty (i.e. lack of access to both private and public mobility resources) and social exclusion (inability to fully participate in life-enhancing activities).

In these contexts, households that do not own cars are overwhelmingly concentrated in the lowest income quintiles, where approximately only half of households own cars. For low income households with cars, mobility is still reduced -- they make significantly fewer trips and travel much shorter distances than their higher-income, car-owning counterparts.

The experience of reduced mobility often means that low income households are unable to fully participate in key activities, such as employment, education, health care and food shopping. It is perhaps for these reasons that car ownership among low-income households in the UK has increased more rapidly year on year than for other income brackets. Yet this statistical trend tells us very little about the actual motivations behind why people living on or near ‘the breadline’ (i.e. in poverty) are willing to commit so much of their limited financial resources to owning and running a private vehicle. They do so even when they find it difficult to afford other basic necessities, such as food, warmth, shelter and clothing. Much of transportation policy is based on the idea that low-income people do not own cars. Yet a growing body of evidence suggests that this is no longer the case.

What does the experience of low-income car ownership mean for our work in transportation, and what lessons learned from other western countries can help guide our efforts here in Canada? Join transportation expert Karen Lucas as she explores these issues and discusses the ‘auto motives’ of low-income populations, by drawing on case study evidence from different geographical and social contexts over the last 20 yrs.

Webinar Highlights

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What social exclusion is and how it relates to transportation;
  • The various motivations behind car ownership for low income households and individuals;
  • The opportunities and challenges of car ownership for people of limited financial means; and
  • Further research and policy measures required to help address these issues.
