The European Commission’s Sustainable Urban Mobility campaign, launched in July 2012, is a three-year initiative aiming to support sustainable urban mobility campaigners in the European Union’s Member States, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. The central objective of this campaign is to promote the advantages of combining different modes of transportation and aims to highlight and advertise the fact that by using different modes of transportation for each journey as appropriate, people can improve their health, their finances and the environment.
European Urban Transport Roadmaps 2030,
Roadmaps 2030 will catalyse action on developing sustainable urban mobility across Europe
Ensure urban transport with the aim that objectives of 2011 Transport White Paper can be realised. It will facilitate practical action through the development and dissemination of robust, easy-to-use tools and guidance. A free, on-line, policy support tool will be available at the end of 2015.
The EVIDENCE project is a collaborative partnership reviewing the evidence of costs and benefits of sustainable urban mobility solutions.
EPOMM is the European Platform on Mobility Management, a network of governments in European countries that are engaged in Mobility Management (MM).
Endurance project, http://epomm.eu/endurance/index.php
ENDURANCE aims to assist cities and regions with developing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) by facilitating networking, mutual learning and sharing of experience and best practice across countries. This will be done through establishing enduring national SUMP networks in all EU countries and Norway, by establishing an enduring and integrated European SUMP training and policy transfer network and by Activating 250 cities in Europe to engage in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans and implementation of them.
Poly-SUMP, Polycentric Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, aims to develop a sustainable mobility planning methodology in polycentric regions – areas characterised by several centres, where services and goods, and therefore transport needs, are scattered in different towns.
The PUMAS project "Planning Sustainable regional-Urban Mobility in the Alpine Space" aims to advance SUMP, which focuses on participation, integration, evaluation and cost internalisation as a new paradigm in mobility planning.
SOLUTIONS aims to support the exchange on innovative and green urban mobility solutions between cities from Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean. The project brings together a wealth of experience and technical knowledge from international organisations, consultants, cities, and experts involved in transport issues and solutions.
The mission of the TIDE project is to enhance the broad transfer and take-up of 15 innovative urban transport and mobility measures throughout Europe and to make a visible contribution to establish them as mainstream measures.
