Enroll now in the SURF e-course and develop new pathways for sustainable urban freight

Register now for the SURF (Sustainable URban Freight) e-course to get a better understanding of Zero Emission Zones for Freight (ZEZ-F) and to develop a vision and strategy pathway for sustainable urban freight.

SURF is a collaboration with Environmental Defense Fund Europe, one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations working to turn environmental solutions into action. The Project develops and structures knowledge and awareness on ZEZ-F.

The Project develops an e-course and a series of learning and peer-to-peer activities that are aimed to equip local and national policy makers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and operators with the skills and knowledge required to develop, implement and operate ZEZ-F. The objective is to raise awareness and establish long-lasting capabilities for all key stakeholders to successfully support the transition to zero emission deliveries.

The e-course is primarily designed for city and regional authorities but aims to provide a solid knowledge basis for any stakeholder involved in urban freight operations. The course will be openly available to all the public.

The e-course is organized in 3 Units:

  1. Why ZEZ for freight? The context
  2. Toward a Successful ZEZ-F: Steps for Action
  3. Keys to success

In addition to lectures and material for self-study, a kick-off webinar (15 September 2021) gives key information and guidance about the learning programme and the SURF Project.
