PUMAS is organisisng a very interesting seminar on institutional cooperation, one of the most pressing challenges in sustanable urban mobility planning.

On October 13th 2014 the City of Brno invites interested persons and organisations to the Czech National Seminar on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. The Seminar is organised in teh framework of CH4LLENGE and will focus on teh development of SUMPs in Czech Republic. You can register and download the agenda for the event here.

Guidelines that explain the essential steps involved in developing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) have been published by the European Commission in a further six languages. The guidelines are now available also in Bulgarian, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian and Spanish.

If you are a graduate student (MSc and PhD) or a young professional in fields relevant to sustainable urban mobility, come and join one of the upcomimg CH4LLENGE Universities!

All courses will be held in English and will present you new ideas and practical approaches in the field of sustainable mobility planning.

The project CH4LLENGE organised its fourth and last workshop for more than 50 participants from the nine project cities and 26 follower cities that receive tailor-made support in SUMP development from the CH4LLENGE experts. While the first three workshops looked at participation & engagement, institutional cooperation and measure selection, the workshop in Dresden dealt with monitoring and evaluation in mobility and transport planning.

The 12th edition of the annual CIVITAS Forum Conference will take place between 23rd and 26th September 2014 in Casablanca, Morocco. Casablanca will be the first non-European city hosting the CIVITAS forum conference.

The Annual PUMAS Conference “Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans: from local to territorial and cross-border experiences”will be held in Nova Gorica, Slovenia on 4 June 2014. Save the date now!

We are very pleased to announce that the capital of Estonia has joined our project as a Follower City in February 2014. Having just recently introduced free public transport for its citizens and having extensively worked on improving sustainability in the city, we look forward to learn more about their experiences and local practices. Sustainable urban mobility planning is a relatively new concept in Tallinn though.

To support the take-up of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans in European cities CH4LLENGE offers a series of in-depth training workshops on the four SUMP challenges.
