Following on from the ICBF, The European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) is being hosted by Gemeente Groningen on 17-18 June.
The focus of the conference is on providing support, exchanging experiences and best practices on sustainable mobility plans, hence validating the new SUMP guidelines. The European Conference serves as a forum for policy makers, local authorities, urban transport planners, academics, non-governmental organisations, NGOs and other mobility professionals. The event offers opportunities to network, debate key issues and to exchange ideas on sustainable urban mobility planning. Attendance is free of charge. We expect over 500 participants in this years edition in Groningen.
Revision of the SUMP Guidelines
Updated SUMP guidelines will be presented for review by the SUMP community. Since their launch in 2013, the guidelines have become the main reference for the development of SUMP and have been adopted widely across Europe. The guidelines are being updated to reflect recent trends in mobility, technology and society. At various sessions with different formats, participants are encouraged to provide their comments and feedback on the draft updated guidelines and give their views on long-term planning for sustainable urban mobility.
