Past event
A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan is a way of tackling transport-related problems in urban areas more efficiently. Building on existing practices and regulatory frameworks in the Member States, its basic characteristics are:

A participatory approach;
A pledge for sustainability;
An integrated approach;
A clear vision, objectives and measurable targets;
A review of transport costs and benefits.

The European Commission seeks to accelerate the large scale take up of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans by local and regional authorities in Europe by informing comprehensively about the scope, content and benefits of these plans. Until early 2013, a team of experts appointed by the European Commission is delivering 35 seminars and experience exchange events on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans in national languages all over Europe.

The technical training seminar in Riga is targeted at local planners and implementers in Latvia. It is organised by the European ELTISplus project and the Baltic Environmental Forum (BEF).

The technical training seminar will be held at Hotel Avalon in Riga on 23 January 2013.
