Involving stakeholders and the public is a precondition for sustainable urban mobility and supports the development of a more effective, efficient and accepted Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). This course gives an overview about the relevance of participation in SUMP preparation and provides insights into managing participatory transport planning, identifying stakeholders and working with interested parties, the public and the media. It explores how to select appropriate involvement formats and looks at the practical work of conducting a participation process. By the end of this course, you will have gained comprehensive knowledge about how to successfully engage citizens and stakeholders in SUMP development.

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.

CH4LLENGE

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.

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.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD and the CIVITAS thematic group ‘Urban Freight Logistics’ held a WEBINAR on how the cities of Stockholm, Utrecht, London and Hasselt have set up their Urban Consolidation Centres (UCCs). Through short 15-minute presentations this webinar looked at the experience from four different cities, including success factors, barriers and lessons learned, the role of local authorities and other stakeholders, services offered, business models, and policies which ‘complement’ the implementation of UCCs.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD, and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Mobility Management' organised a webinar on 22nd January 2013 about how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and how to assure basic mobility for all citizens by providing mobility training for specific target groups. Training is often associated with children and youngsters. Many adults however miss the basic knowledge or skills to use certain transport modes, at risk of social isolation. Through five presentations and a 15-minute discussion, this webinar looked at training initiatives that enable different target groups to master and choose the mode of transport that best fits their needs and trip purposes. Both CIVITAS and non-CIVITAS experiences were presented.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD, CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Less car intensive lifestyles' held a first webinar on how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and towards clean and energy efficient transport by addressing children and young adults on 2 March 2012. When walking and cycling, children become more aware of their surroundings and develop road safety skills as well as improve their ability to anticipate other road users. Furthermore, walking and cycling contribute to the recommended amount of daily exercise that children and young adults need. The dependency on the private car needs to be reduced if cities are to achieve cleaner and better transport. Through five presentations and a 15-minute discussion, this webinar looked at promoting car-reduced and car-independent lifestyles, which seek to make more sustainable use of the car through car-pooling, car-sharing and the use of non-motorised modes such as cycling and walking.
