Successfully involving stakeholders

Stakeholder engagement is an important aspect of any decision-making process and is recognised by transport practitioners and decision-makers as a critical factor for successful implementation of mobility measures.

The CIVITAS Initiative has developed a toolkit for use by transport practitioners so they can effectively involve stakeholders in the planning of measures. The toolkit includes elements to help plan, carry out and evaluate the process of engaging stakeholders.

TOGETHER on the move – energy-efficient transport training for immigrants

The European Union attracts immigrants from all over the globe. Apart from obvious barriers such as financial, language or cultural barriers, immigrants also have to adapt to complex European mobility systems. Driving a car sometimes seems the easiest solution, but isn’t the most preferred option in terms of energy efficiency. Moreover, mobility and (easy) access to different transport modes is a precondition for finding a job, social inclusion and successful integration in a new society.

Marketing sustainable mobility

Successful sustainable mobility measures can only come about through reaching the people for whom they are designed. Communicating directly and indirectly with users also helps to demonstrate transparency and a willingness to engage and involve citizens and stakeholders in a dialogue about services which are important to them.

Involving older stakeholders

The AENEAS Stakeholder Involvement Handbook is intended to encourage organisations which are not familiar with stakeholder involvement to try out some of the tools and techniques in their own projects.

Since excellent work has been done in this field before, this document is largely building on these experiences and focusing on older people and relevant stakeholders.

Public participation in sustainable transport

Consultation and participation of key stakeholders and members of the public when developing sustainable transport measures is a valuable process, helping to drive public acceptance and design more effective schemes. This handbook, produced by the GUIDEMAPS project, provides a great deal of advice on this topic together with practical examples from cities that have used innovative public participation strategies to help them to improve their planning and delivery of sustainable transport policies.
