Since their launch in 2013, the EU's SUMP Guidelines have been the main reference document for developing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). Yet the last five years have seen societal and technological developments and valuable insight gained from implementing SUMPs: it is time to update the Guidelines to reflect these.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up invites the EU urban mobility community to join an upcoming event and contribute to the new version of the EU SUMP Guidelines.

Held on 12 December 2018, 09.15 - 13.00 in Brussels (Belgium) at the Basque Delegation to the EU, it forms part of ICLEI's long-running Breakfast at Sustainability's series.

For local, national and European level officials working on SUMPs, it represents a prime opportunity to shape EU mobility policy. 

Following an opening address from DG MOVE on the importance of SUMP 2.0, three cities with different SUMP profiles will discuss their experiences of using the Guidelines and the improvements they think are needed.

This sets the scene for an interactive stakeholder workshop in which participants will be able to give feedback on specific sections of the Guidelines and put forward the good practice examples and methods they believe should be included in the new document.

A networking breakfast and lunch provide further chances to meet and swap ideas with SUMP peers from across Europe.

Register your place here by 7 December 2018.  Please note that due to limited venue capacity, registrations will be considered until the venue is filled.
