Learn from 76 good practices on citizens’ and stakeholders engagement in SUMPs

Seneca said once: 'the road to learning by precept is long, but by example short and effective'. We could not agree more and that why the e-smartec Consortium, in which Polis Network is involved, joined efforts to collected 76 local and international Good Practices on citizens’ and stakeholders engagement in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). 

Intending to tackle the environmental challenges linked to mobility congestion and air pollution, e-smartec proposes accompanying each step of mobility planning with the deployment of targeted marketing techniques for connecting bottom-up and top-down decision making

The collection of Good Practices will be used to provide tailored guidelines to stakeholders in the six project regions: Region of Central MacedoniaWest Midlands RegionLazio RegionBratislava Self-Governing RegionVenlo Region and the State of Hessen.

This year, e-smartec is planning to organise six hands-on training and six plenary stakeholders meetings to enhance SUMPs development. Policy-makers and academics will benefit from the knowledge of different European-funded projects summarised here.

The first report describes the 32 Good Practices that come from the six project areas and second state-of-the-art compilation focuses on 44 Good Practices collected outside our regions. All focused on how regions and cities in Europe have successfully used creative marketing and engagement techniques to involve citizens and stakeholder in the SUMPs process.
