Exchanging knowledge in a European learning programme for cities
The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up SUMP Learning Programme 3 allowed small- and medium-sized cities to share knowledge and experiences through various activities. As a result of exchanges, Rivas-Vaciamadrid learned about the steps to select, prioritise, and describe measures and followed these to reorganise its public transport system. The SUMP working group in Kilkis referred to insights about stakeholder engagement, measure selection, monitoring, and evaluation to develop an effective implementation methodology. Ginosa plans to establish a SUMP working group, which would embed learning from the programme into the city’s long-term strategies and thereby help foster a more sustainable Ginosa.
