The 6th European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans will take place from 17 – 18 June 2019 in Groningen (The Netherlands).

Gathering policy makers, local authorities, urban transport planners, academics, NGOs and other mobility professionals, the SUMP Conference is the best place to exchange ideas on sustainable urban mobility planning.

All those involved in putting the SUMP concept into practice are invited to attend.

The conference is co-funded by the European Commission in cooperation with the Municipality of Groningen and is free of charge. Registration can be completed online.

One of the main focuses of this year's conference are the updated SUMP guidelines, which will be presented for review by the SUMP community.

Since their launch in 2013, the guidelines have become the main reference for the development of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans and have been adopted widely across Europe. The Guidelines are currently being updated to reflect recent trends in mobility, technology and society.

At various sessions with different formats, participants are encouraged to provide their comments and feedback on the draft updated guidelines and give their views on long-term planning for sustainable urban mobility.

The conference programme features speakers from cities across Europe as well as experts working in the field, and covers each aspect of sustainable urban mobility planning.

A series of site visits will also be held, revealing the sustainable mobility work of host city Groningen.

Participants can join tours showcasing the city’s smart cycling routes, automated shuttle buses, transit-oriented development, and more. Find a full list of site visits here.
