Previously intended to take place as a three-day conference in Brussels, the event’s new online format will enable participants to join debates and exchange expertise on the most important urban mobility topics safely from their own desks.
The conference combines two leading events from Europe’s transport calendar: the CIVITAS Forum Conference and the European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). It will allow policymakers, local authorities, academics, NGOs, urban transport practitioners, urban planners and all those putting the SUMP concept into practice to share their experiences using a virtual forum.
Over the course of the digital conference, delegates will hear sustainable urban mobility success stories from the CIVITAS Living Labs projects – and other examples of pioneering excellence from Europe and further afield. These will equip attendees with inspiration, tools, and know-how to further advance clean and sustainable transport in line with the European Green Deal.
With such a wealth of expertise and knowledge-sharing, Urban Mobility Days provides the ideal opportunity to digitally network, debate key issues, and exchange ideas on emerging transport trends and technologies and the latest developments in sustainable urban mobility planning.
The conference will also go beyond transport by connecting zero-emission mobility initiatives with broader EU efforts to tackle climate change and make Europe a carbon-neutral continent by 2050. Conference activities will also address the resilience of urban mobility in unforeseen circumstances, and take stock of lessons learned to date during the COVID-19 pandemic.
