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 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 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.

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.
