CIVITAS ECCENTRIC webinar: Addressing vulnerable groups and gender issues in SUMPs
CIVITAS ECCENTRIC webinar
Vulnerable groups such as children, older people, or people with disabilities depend on public transportation and accessible public space to stay mobile. Women are also more regular users of public transport than men.
Therefore, sustainable urban mobility planning needs to provide inclusive and accessible means of mobility for all of these groups.
The first CIVITAS ECCENTRIC thematic webinar offered insights from mobility planners and practitioners into different aspects of the topic:
- Solutions and mobility measures addressing gender issues;
- Improving walkability for all;
- Offering better mobility for children and the elderly.
The city of Umeå (Sweden), host of the CIVITAS Forum 2018, shared their experiences of addressing gender issues in their city.
