The Guidelines on Developing and Implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan were released on 17 December 2013 in conjunction with the official announcement of the European Commission’s Urban Mobility Package. The now final version of the SUMP Guidelines replaces the 2011 working document. The SUMP Guidelines are available for download at

Urban mobility in Europe’s cities – a home to 70% of the EU population – is still heavily reliant on the use of conventionally-fuelled private cars. Only slow progress is being made in shifting towards sustainable urban mobility modes. To stimulate the shift towards cleaner and more sustainable transport in urban areas the European Commission adopted the Urban Mobility Package on 17 December 2013.

CH4LLENGE project is happy to announce that our leaflet has been published! The first side presents the projects aims and key facts and explains how you can benefit from the results of CH4LLENGE. The other side presents the CH4LLENGE partners and cities and can be put up as a poster on your wall.

The 2nd CH4LLENGE training workshop on Institutional cooperation took place in Leeds, England on the 5-6th of November 2013. The workshop was hosted by a CH4LLENGE partner Metro which is a Strategic Transport Authority for the five West Yorkshire local district authorities with broad experience in institutional cooperation.

CH4LLENGE will be actively present at the Annual Polis conference where two of our cities Dresden and Budapest will tell about their experiences on Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning. Both cities will contribute to a session called “Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans: Here to stay” and branded as CH4LLENGE session.
