Since their launch in 2013, the EU's SUMP Guidelines have been the main reference document for developing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).
Yet the last five years have seen many societal and technological developments and valuable insight gained from implementing SUMPs: it is time to update the Guidelines to reflect these.
The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project is hosting an event on 12 December 2018, 09.15 - 13.00, in Brussels (Belgium) as part of the SUMP 2.0 process to revise the Guidelines.
Hosted in the office of the Basque Country's Delegation to Brussels, this also forms part of ICLEI's long-running Breakfast at Sustainability's (B@S) series.
For local, national and European level officials working on SUMPs, this is a prime opportunity to contribute to the next generation of EU SUMP Guidelines and help shape EU mobility policy. Because of this, the event is particularly targeted at those who have applied the Guidelines in their own work.
Following an opening address from DG MOVE on the importance of SUMP 2.0, three cities with different SUMP profiles will discuss their experiences of using the Guidelines and the improvements they think are needed.
This sets the scene for an interactive stakeholder workshop in which participants can give feedback on specific sections of the Guidelines and put forward the good practice examples and methods they believe should be included in the new document.
A networking breakfast and lunch provide further chances to meet and swap ideas with SUMP peers from across Europe.
Read the agenda and register below. Book your place by 7 December 2018.
