Ukrainian cities invited to join POLIS network

At its Annual General Assembly in November 2023, the members of the POLIS Network unanimously agreed to open up the Network's services to Ukrainian cities, at no charge. With this action, POLIS aims to provide its support in rebuilding and building back better their transport infrastructure, with sustainability at the core.

International cooperation is critical for tackling transport-related societal challenges, such as climate change, air pollution, congestion and road safety. POLIS’ Working Groups offer a platform for action-oriented exchange with other mobility practitioners. The sessions tackle a wide range of urban mobility-related topics, including active travel, safety & security, clean vehicles and air quality, urban freight transport, social and economic access, traffic efficiency, and governance.

POLIS membership grants access to resources and peer-to-peer networking opportunities on both the practitioner and political levels. The Political Group brings together the elected officials of member cities and regions holding the mobility portfolio, including deputy mayors, regional ministers and secretaries of state. Meanwhile, through European project support, in Horizon Europe and beyond, POLIS aims to enhance innovation in local and regional transport.

POLIS’ members stand united in helping build back Ukrainian cities with sustainable and resilient mobility at their core.
