As part of its package of learning activities for mobility practitioners, CIVITAS SUMPs-Up is organising its first webinar on Wednesday 5 December, 10:00 - 11:30 CET.
This will look at the topic of “Starting up the SUMP process - Tools for SUMP”. It will include a detailed presentation from the project's SUMP experts on the best tools to assist with the process of beginning a SUMP.
Following this, Kristina Gaučė from the city of Vilnius, Lithuania, will present a case study on their experiences of starting up the SUMP process.
The agenda can be found below.
During three years the STREET project (which is short for Sustainable Transport Education for Environment and Tourism) has produced a wide range of helpful materials in the field of Sustainable Transport and Mobility Management after meeting with and learning from relevant and experienced practitioners.
21 young graduates from all over Europe carried out four study visits in London (UK), Bled (Slovenia), Werfenweng (Austria) and Turin (Italy) exploring good practices and experience in the field.
During an Eramus+ project students developed a training course (which includes a combination of 10 modules and video lessons) on Mobility Management.
You can access the modules here. The platform has open access.
The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project is hosting an event on 12 December 2018, 09.15 - 13.00, in Brussels (Belgium), as part of the ongoing process to revise the EU SUMP Guidelines.
