Bremen to host sustainable urban mobility events in April

10 March 2016

The northern German city of Bremen is the host for this year’s edition of the European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. The conference will focus on planning for efficiency, with parallel sessions organised according to four different themes: the overall picture for sustainable urban mobility planning, anticipating future challenges, integrating mobility with other policy areas, and new planning methods and tools.

As the winner of the 2014 SUMP Award, Bremen is making great strides in sustainable mobility. A range of study tours are on offer, showcasing Bremen’s transport improvements such as its car-sharing system and how more sustainable mobility is supporting urban redevelopment. There are also a number of smaller events taking place around the conference, including a CIVITAS training on shared and inclusive mobility, and the launch of the European Urban Transport Roadmaps tool to support better urban mobility planning.

The final event for the EU-funded SWITCH project will also be held in Bremen, taking place the day after the SUMP conference ends. The project worked on promoting travel by active modes such as walking and cycling, and encouraged city residents to do so through personalised travel advice and information technology. Results from the project’s partner cities will also be presented. Among the partner cities are Antwerp (Belgium), Donostia-San Sebastián (Spain), Gdansk (Poland), London (United Kingdom), and Vienna (Austria).
