28th Breakfast at Sustainability's

SUMP 2.0: Reshaping the EU Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning Guidelines

12 December 2018, 09:15 - 13:00
Brussels, Belgium

The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project hosted an event on 12 December 2018, 09.15 - 13.00, in Brussels (Belgium) as part of the process to revise the EU's Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) Guidelines. This also formed part of ICLEI's long-running Breakfast at Sustainability's (B@S) series.

For local, national and European level officials working on SUMPs, the event provided a prime opportunity to make a crucial contribution to improve the next generation of SUMP Guidelines and shape EU mobility policy.

Following an opening address from the European Commission on the importance of SUMP 2.0, three cities with different SUMP profiles discussed their experiences of using the Guidelines and the improvements they think are needed.

This set the scene for an interactive stakeholder workshop in which participants were able to give feedback on specific sections of the Guidelines and put forward the good practice examples and methods they believe should be included in the new document.

A networking breakfast and lunch provided further chances to meet and swap ideas with SUMP peers from across Europe.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up is funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme and assists planning authorities to overcome the barriers limiting SUMP development and implementation.

B@S is Europe’s leading, ongoing series of sustainability discussions, addressing the most urgent and vital topics on the sustainable urban development agenda.
