The mission of the CIVITAS WIKI project is to provide information on clean urban transport and the CIVITAS Initiative to EU city planners, decision-makers and citizens. With its policy documents WIKI aims to inform people in cities about a number of topics that currently play an important role in urban mobility.

This policy analysis focuses on the use of social media to involve citizens in urban mobility projects and planning of cities and regions. This publication was produced by the CIVITAS WIKI consortium. The policy note was compiled by Inova+ team.

A growing debate on this topic is going on at EU level and has been re-launched within the CIVITAS Public Involvement Thematic Group. Collaborative interaction was set up on the CIVITAS Interactive platform (www. and in the CIVITAS Urban Mobility LinkedIn group to collect further resources, links to other projects, practical city experiences and opinions and comments on the topic.
