CIVITAS FORUM Conference 2016 – less than two weeks to the start

The annual CIVITAS FORUM Conference is one of the most popular mobility conferences attended by hundreds of mobility professionals each year. This year’s three-days programme will offer collaborative workshops, state-of-the-art presentations and interesting site visits. The city of Gdynia in Poland has been chosen as a host for 2016. The city has been active participant in the CIVITAS programme and is a leader in many sustainable mobility measures in Europe, thus providing interesting and rich environment for the conference theme.
