This October, the City of Aachen (Germany) will jost the 18th CIVITAS Forum, which gathers the keenest mobility minds from across Europe and beyond to discuss the most pressing topics in the field of sustainable urban mobility. This year's event is taking a hybrid (online and in person) format. Click here to register now.

Since 2003, the CIVITAS Forum Conferences have brought together sustainable urban mobility representatives and leading cities – including both their politicians and technical experts. The events include larger plenary and smaller technical and roundtable sessions, as well as site visits that offer the opportunity for real transfer of expertise.

A short politicians' forum also takes place during the conference. ICLEI Members have historically been well represented among the participants and contributors, which serves as an important occasion to exchange views on sustainable urban mobility policy issues.

This year's CIVITAS Forum will combine online and onsite activities, which continue the tradition of offering interactive workshops, sessions, and site visits, whilst introducing new programme elements. A draft programme can be seen here.

This year's event will specifically zoom in on the theme of "Smart routes to climate-neutral cities". This builds on the European Commission’s Mission to create 100 climate-neutral cities by 2030. The event will explore the role of mobility and transport in meeting this goal, as well as the relationship between smart mobility and climate-neutral mobility, and what local authorities need – from the private sector, the European Commission, and each other – to create smart and climate-neutral cities.

Attendees can expect to hear about innovative sustainable mobility solutions from forward-thinking cities, people and projects – including a number of ICLEI Members and experts – as well as to exchange and connect with city representatives, policymakers, practitioners, planners, NGOs, and academics.

The Forum is free to attend and perfect for people passionate about mobility, innovation and sustainability. Follow all Forum developments on social media with the hashtag #CIVITAS2021.
