Young people have an integral role to play in the sustainable urban mobility conversation. Their fresh perspectives are a valuable source of insight for decision-makers responsible for shaping mobility at the local, regional and international levels.
The CIVITAS Initiative involves young people in two ways: first through its Educational Network, which enables cooperation between educational institutes active in the field of urban mobility; and second through activities and events, known as Mobility Powered by Youth. These events often aim to connect young people with mobility decision-makers, so that their ideas and perspectives can be heard on a larger stage.
To become involved, monitor the news and open calls section, or follow the CIVITAS Educational Network LinkedIn Group here.
Read more about the Educational Network below. Watch the Spotlight video on the Educational Network. Check out the CIVITAS Catalogue on Education in Urban Mobility here. This catalogue provides an overview of educational offers in (or related to) urban mobility, as offered by educational institutes across Europe.

News and Open Calls
CIVITAS Educational Network
The CIVITAS Educational Network facilitates cross-European cooperation between educational institutes active in the field of mobility. It does by utilising a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to (non-) urban mobility education. The creation of the Network was inspired by the results of a survey conducted by CIVITAS in 2021, which indicated the value of such a network for allowing greater structural cooperation among universities. Launched in late 2021, the network is coordinated by its steering group, and all other network members are involved in co-shaping the direction of the network.
Our mission is to educate future professionals so that they are prepared to implement the sustainable mobility transition. We do this by
- Facilitating cooperation between institutes
- Exchanging knowledge and experiences
- Tackling existing gaps between education and employability
- Fostering synergies and mutual understanding relating to (non-) urban mobility
