Three lucky local authority representatives have won a free trip to the 4th European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans in Dubrovnik (Croatia) after completing a survey on sustainable urban mobility planning.
The winners - from Kraljevo (Serbia), Borovnica (Slovenia) and Katowice (Poland) - were drawn at random after completing the CIVITAS SUMP Survey. Some 441 local authority representatives took the survey.
The survey was launched by three EU-funded mobility projects – CIVITAS PROSPERITY, CIVITAS SUITS and CIVITAS SUMPs-Up – with the aim of understanding cities’ needs and barriers when trying to develop Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).
A SUMP is a strategic plan that aims to create an urban transport system for all citizens that improves safety and security, reduces air and noise pollution, greenhouse gases and energy consumption, and boosts the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the transport of people and goods.
The projects will use the data to design tools and resources to help cities develop SUMPs. All those that completed the survey will get priority for the projects’ training and support activities.
'This survey will gather crucial details on what’s holding back or driving forward urban mobility planning in cities across Europe. It will enable our experts to create high-quality products and services that local authorities can use to develop SUMPs,' said Cristina Garzillo, the SUMPs-Up project co-ordinator.
