In order to underline the importance of making cities and their transport systems more accessible, fluid, greener and safer, the CIVITAS Forum has chosen to focus this year on the main ideas of the Green Paper on urban transport and its Action Plan, planned in the autumn of 2008. The participation of the new Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Transport, M. Antonio Tajani, is expected to present this new Action Plan.Change is possible only if the challenge of a new culture for urban mobility is shared by institutions and citizens. Fortunately, these concepts are becoming a priority not only in the minds of city administrators but also in the collective consciousness of society, with tangible results in cities throughout Europe. However, there is still a long way to go, with perhaps the most formidable obstacle posed by the natural opposition of vested interests, which often brings institutions, corporations and even individual citizens to costly stalemates. The consequence is often a serious limitation to the capacity to implement innovative and radical policies capable of going along with and at the same time guide a rapidly moving society.With this awareness the CIVITAS Forum 2008 will be an important opportunity to focus this general topic and to foresee the new road and actions to pursue together!More information can be found at the CIVITAS FORUM CONFERENCE 2008 WEBSITE or get in contact with the CIVITAS Forum Secretariat civitas [at] fgm-amor [dot] at
