CIVITAS ECCENTRIC webinars

Living in the city without a car and travelling sustainably in an easy and accessible way? Cities can make this possible by installing mobility stations.

The City of Munich, like so many European cities, is seeing new housing development and new residential areas growing. The city wants to move away from the usual one parking spot per housing unit regulation, freeing up public space for other uses and supporting its citizens in making sustainable mobility choices at the same time.

As part of the EU-funded CIVITAS ECCENTRIC project Munich has set up several mobility stations. Mobility stations combine and provide a number of mobility services to ensure that suitable means of transport are available for any purpose at any time and offer a real alternative to car ownership.

What does a city need to consider when developing mobility stations? How to get the public on board with these new plans? Which results can be expected? During this practitioner’s webinar, the City of Munich shared its experience and dove into the lessons learned. The webinar was held on April 7th 2020.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The last e-course in the SUMPs-Up series offers information and guidance on financing and procuring SUMP measures.

The course will look at different funding and financing options for SUMP implementation from local revenue streams to regional and national funding sources and other sources.

It will also suggest ways to involve private sector more actively in the SUMP implementation. This helps to prepare financial plans for all actions.

The course includes a variety of concrete examples from European cities to finance mobility measures. The course also introduces the principles for sustainable public procurement and offers examples on procuring innovative mobility solutions.

After completing this course, you should be ready for financing and procuring sustainable urban mobility measures.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

Measure selection and packaging are highly important parts of the overall process of developing a SUMP. Mobility policies and measures are at the heart of the planning approach of sustainable urban mobility planning.

The fourth SUMPs-Up e-course will help planners and decision makers consider where to start the measures selection process and gives advice how to determine the baseline by reviewing already existing measures as well as the current status of the transport system.

The course will also recommend methods to thin out a long list of measures to address city’s vision and targets.  After completing this lesson, now you should know the basis of measure selection in a SUMP context as well as some assessment methods to structure your measure selection.

SUMP measures will help planners and decision makers prioritise and rate measures selected in previous phases in order to identify measures that are effective and feasible for the city.

The course will introduce an assessment method for packaging measures and a way to conduct impact assessment for the selected measures. It also suggests how to use scenario building as a means of measure assessment.

After completing this course, now you should know the basis of prioritising measures which includes rating, prioritising and packaging of measures.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

Many cities struggle with implementing their SUMP. This course explains the foundations of how planning authorities can overcome the barriers and how action planning is key to achieve this.

It also helps planners and decision describe and gain approval for selected measures and break the measures into actions and plan the implementation in more detail. The course will also address other crucial success factor in the SUMP process – monitoring and evaluation.

Monitoring and evaluation both the of the planning process and the measure implementation are crucial to the effectiveness of a SUMP.

Lastly, the course will give tips for managing the implementation process to ensure good coordination among all parties involved.

CIVITAS ECCENTRIC webinars

The second CIVITAS ECCENTRIC thematic webinar looked at the topic of inclusion of peripheral neighbourhoods in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).  

This topic is crucial, but remains largely unexplored. Suburban areas have remained largely unaddressed in terms of dealing with high demand for passenger and freight traffic.

Moreover, due to increasingly high urban centre developments, additional pressure hast been imposed on suburban areas, which then face specific challenges of:

  • Becoming sufficiently appealing to avoid an unnecessary traffic flow towards the city centre;
  • Providing sustainable and high quality mobility options to enable and encourage car independent lifestyles; and
  • Planning the urban future according to carbon neutral mobility principles.
This webinar from CIVITAS ECCENTRIC shines light on these vital factors.

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.

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.
