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
- 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.
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.
