Four years after the publication of the European Commission’s Urban Mobility Package (2013) and related SUMP Guidelines (2014), there is now a large and expanding network of cities committed to preparing and implementing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. This includes cities and institutions involved in various EU projects and initiatives, designed to drive forward mobility planning research, practice and innovation.
The European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans is the principal annual event enabling this international community of practitioners, policy makers, city staff and academics from across Europe to come together to debate key issues, highlight developments in mobility planning and exchange ideas and experience.
Last year's European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans attracted over 400 participants from the fields of transport planning and development, research and policy.
