About the Conference

The European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans is the principal annual event enabling an international community of practitioners, policy makers, city staff and academics from across Europe to come together to debate key issues, highlight developments in mobility planning and exchange ideas and experience.

The conference will address the following themes:

  • The Big Picture: Investigate the interface between mobility planning, land use planning and urban design
  • Making the SUMP framework more effective: Learn about sources of support from beyond the city’s own SUMP
  • The integration and innovation challenge: Investigate areas of key policy interest, including freight, parking, safety or IT solutions
  • Planning Techniques: Get an update on planning methods and tools

The two-day event will have different session formats in order to trigger interaction within the audience and encourage further cooperation, thus representing a unique opportunity to gather ideas, share visions and exchange knowledge on the different challenges that are set.
