A Mobility Forum to agree on responsibilities for actions
After the adoption of the SUMP in 2014, the stakeholders involved in the implementation met in the Mobility Forum, which acted as a SUMP assembly. The Mobility Forum met for the first time in 2016 with the aim of presenting the progress of the various measures and discussing and identifying the way forward with all participants. Responsibilities were allocated, firstly according to jurisdiction and law provision and secondly according to the skills and capacity of organisations. The success of this informal Mobility Forum relied on the good will of participants. Therefore, Thessaloniki authorities advise to use a more binding framework to sustain the decisions for action planning.
