CIVITAS Politicians' Forum 2017

Politicians from CIVITAS Forum Network member cities are invited to attend this year's Politicians' Forum being held at the CIVITAS Forum in Umeå.

Taking place from 09:30 to 12:00 on 20 September 2018, the meeting will gather senior officials from local authorities across Europe who are leading the way in advancing sustainable urban mobility.

Panel discussions and conversation tables give delegates the chance to interact and exchange experiences with fellow politicians on this year's meeting topic - “Citizens' involvement, urban mobility, and politics”.

Questions to be explored include whether co-creation can help advance political visions, and how involving citizens can help generate public support for 'contentious' mobility measures, such as urban vehicle access regulations.

To confirm your attendance, please contact the CIVITAS Secretariat - secretariat@civitas.eu. To register for the Forum, visit: civitas.eu/forum2018.

The issues raised at the Politicians' Forum are brought to the CIVITAS Political Advisory Committee and feed into their work representing the interests of local governments in transport policy development in the EU.
