Draft programme released for CIVITAS Forum 2018

By rswa178 / Updated: 18 Jul 2018

The draft programme for the 2018 CIVITAS Forum Conference has been published!

Spanning three days, this year’s programme features over 25 parallel sessions. These are split into two types, namely thematic and take-up transfer sessions.

Thematic sessions focus on the most urgent current mobility topics and provide participants with the opportunity to discover and discuss outstanding examples of work across and beyond the CIVITAS Initiative.

Take-up and transfer sessions offer a prime opportunity for participants to get hands-on with and experience cutting-edge urban mobility tools and methods in action.

Alongside these are two sets of site visits and keynote addresses from leading transport planners and policymakers from various levels across Europe.

The programme will be updated periodically in the run-up to the Forum.

As is tradition, the CIVITAS Awards will also be given out on the second evening of the Forum. This year's ceremony will take place in the glamorous Folkets Hus venue, Umeå's prime location for events of all kinds.

The Swedish city of Umeå will host the 2018 edition of the Forum. A set of site visits in the city will allow participants to get hands-on experience with the city’s sustainable mobility initiatives, including a multimodal hub, a smart university district, electric buses and cargo bikes, and much more.

Do not miss the chance to mingle with Europe's most creative mobility minds this September!
