The CIVINET Slovenia-Croatia-SEE recently worked together with the CIVINET Czech & Slovak Republics to organise a study tour to Prague, while Magyar CIVINET work with them to co-organise a study tour to Brno. Both of the study tours proved to be highly successful!
CIVINET Slovenia-Croatia-SEE heads to Prague
In all, 26 CIVINET members from Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina joined the three-day visit to Prague. This was an opportunity to learn and get inspired, with a focus on: impacts of SUMPs in spatial and transport planning; street transformation; public transportation; pedestrian zones; and electric vehicles. Participants visited an array of institutions in the city, each of which are active in the fields of transport and spatial planning. This was an invaluable opportunity to discover and delve into examples of good practices in sustainable urban mobility.
ODRAZ – the non-profit organisation that runs the Secretariat of the CIVINET Slovenia-Croatia-SEE – reflected on this study visit in an article on their website. Be sure to read their reflection in full by clicking here.
Magyar CIVINET visits Brno
For their part, Magyar CIVINET brought 15 representatives and experts from Hungarian municipalities and public transport companies to Brno in a joint event co-organised by Magyar CIVINET and CIVINET Czech and Slovak Republics. The goal of the two-day trip was to learn from the mobility planning processes and their realisation in another Central Eastern European city, with a similar cultural and economic background.
The mobility planning company Mobilissimus published a full write-up reflecting on the impact of the study tour, which can be read here.
These study tours were financially supported by CIVITAS ELEVATE via the CIVINET Activity Fund. They were hugely successful, strengthening cooperation within and amongst CIVINETs.
