CH4LLENGE – The goal of CH4LLENGE is to actively facilitate the take-up of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) in European cities, and to establish a cross- initiative dialogue on overcoming SUMP challenges. The project will support 30 European cities at different stages of working with SUMP. The CH4LLENGE consortium will develop “challenge kits” and will set-up an e-learning platform. More information about CH4LLENGE will soon be available at the project’s webpage.
CH4LLENGE developed transferable solutions to the four common challenges faced when developing and implementing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs):
- participation of stakeholders;
- institutional cooperation;
- identifying effective measures;
- monitoring and evaluation the plan making process and its measures.
The 9 partner cities represented diverse cultures in sustainable urban mobility planning in Europe. CH4LLENGE supported up to 30 committed 'follower' cities to practice sustainable urban mobility planning. A broad set of activities such as national SUMP challenge seminars, e-learning courses, site visits, manuals, quick facts, and the measure option generator will ensure high visibility of the project.
The project ran from March 2013 to March 2016.
