9th SUMP Award launches call for applications
The call for applications for the 9th EU SUMP Award is officially launched from 15 June 2020. For this award edition, the theme of the SUMP Award is "Zero emission mobility for all". Applications should be submitted by 31 October 2020.
In the framework of EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK, the European Commission annually presents the European SUMP Award to a planning authority which demonstrated excellence in sustainable urban mobility planning.
The aim of the SUMP Award is to encourage the adoption of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) by local authorities across Europe and to reward outstanding achievements in each year's thematic priority area. This year, in line with the announcement of the European Commission’s Green Deal, the applicants are expected to share their forward-looking intentions to create zero-emission and inclusive transport in their local context by the integration of sustainable transport modes to their mobility system.
The application period opens on 15 June 2020 and will close on 31 October 2020.
