3rd European Conference on SUMPs - 12-13 April 2016

This is the principal annual event for all those involved in turning the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan concept into practice. More than 300 delegates from across Europe have already registered to attend this free event and the number of places available has been increased. We recommend that you register quickly to avoid dissappointment.

Visit Bremen to experience a city where SUMP processes are at the heart of decision-making - Bremen is the perfect location to visit and explore the conference theme ‘Planning the efficient city’. The city has one of the lowest congestion rates in Europe and was winner of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Award 2014. A host of excursions are arranged to demonstrate how planning processes are shaping: the creation of low-car (and low-carbon) neighbourhoods; the promotion of vehicle sharing; electrification of public transport; the optimised management of freight; and the enhancement of cycle infrastructure.

Learn from best-practice cities and join sessions debating topical SUMP development subjects:

  • How can we best integrate spatial and mobility planning for the city-region?
  • What role can mobility and mobility planning play in fostering social cohesion in a multicultural society?
  • How should we plan for automated urban transport?

Update your knowledge and exchange views on the latest tools aiding SUMP preparation. Join sessions introducing tools and techniques for planning steps including: mobility measure selection and appraisal; modelling for walking and cycling; and mobilising civic participation.
