CIVITAS is pleased to announce the release of six new e-courses for mobility leaders! With help and contributions from a number of CIVITAS projects, CIVITAS ELEVATE has developed e-courses for urban transport professionals on a diversity of topics connected to sustainable urban mobility planning. Browse the entire course catalogue at:

The e-courses have been designed to enhance capacities among mobility professionals, helping them work more effectively and generate greater impacts with their urban mobility projects.

Course development was led by CIVITAS ELEVATE partner DTV Capacity Building, in cooperation with CIVITAS projects. This collaboration ensured that e-courses don't “reinvent the wheel”, but rather apply effective tools and outputs developed by projects. Course participants will learn about the projects that informed each course, their results, how to apply these results to their work, and further practical applications.

The e-courses can be followed online individually, and at a learner’s own pace. There are no group assignments or live elements.

The newest CIVITAS e-courses cover the following topics:

Cargo bikes and their potential for sustainable urban mobility planning
