The need to adopt a gender-sensitive perspective is emerging as a challenging and impending task for urban mobility planners and decision makers. Women travel differently than men in relation to transport modes used, distance travelled, the daily number of trips and their pattern, and, not surprisingly, they also travel for different purposes. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group Integrated Planning, the webinar debated on emerging gender sensitive approaches on mobility planning for achieving gender equality in transport planning and accessibility. First the gaps to be filled about public transport and planning have been discussed, then the point of view of a civic platform to improve transport through citizens’ participation has been presented and lastly the successful city strategy implemented by a former demonstration city of CIVITAS II has been showcased.

Most of our city centres are often overrun by freight delivery vehicles causing severe congestion problems and pollution. Urban Freight Logistic has to be re-thinked by introducing on one hand some restrictive measures for a more efficient freight distribution and, on the other, new “green“ vehicles more suitable for historical city centres and humanised areas. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Urban Freight Logistics with the support of CIVITAS WIKI, the webinar will presented 3 case studies and discussed more in detail of cargo bikes for last mile delivery as well as of regulatory measures and incentives for zero emission city logistics.

The Bus system is a key element of every public transport network all over the world. By choosing a cleaner bus option local decision makers can contribute to the decarbonisation of the urban transport and improvement of the air quality in their cities. In order to reduce emissions from buses it is possible to act on the improvement of the vehicle technology, act on powertrain or consider alternative fuels to be used to propel the vehicle. The webinar presented and discussed the new CIVITAS Policy Note “Smart choices for cities - Clean buses for your city” as well as the report “Clean Buses - Experiences with Fuel and Technology Options” released by the European project Clean Fleets. Apart for presenting technology and fuel options, the webinar highlighted some practical city experiences in running and operating clean buses: together with the cities participating in the Clean Fleets project, also the CIVITAS demonstrative city Gdynia presented its experience in the trolleybus system. The webinar addressed in particular the following questions: (1) Why do municipalities need to consider cleaner options for buses? (2) What are the options available and which energy source/technology should be chosen? (3) What are the costs, emissions and other advantages/disadvantages of the different options? (4) Short term, medium term and long-term investment decisions

There are several examples of city streets converted to a more balanced coexistence of different road users. Traffic calming measures and other innovative nterventions can create safer and more fluent mobility conditions for cars, public transport and goods vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. Which are the most attractive and low cost solutions? Can road design be used also for fast interventions and for active involvement of citizens in testing new traffic rules and more sustainable modes? CIVITAS WIKI and the Thematic Group Safety and Security invite you to interact, share your experiences and your questions.
