10th SUMP Award now accepting applications

15 June 2021

Each year, the European Commission presents the European Award for Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP Award) to a planning authority that demonstrates excellence in the field. The award encourages the adoption of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) by local authorities across Europe, and rewards outstanding planning achievements under each year’s thematic priority area. 

Applications for this year's edition of the award are now open, with this year marking a special year for the award, as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.

The theme of this year’s edition is “Safe and Healthy with Sustainable Mobility”. The topical focus is based on this year's EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK theme, which pays tribute to the hardships felt by Europe – and the world – throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. It also reflects on the opportunities for change resulting from this unprecedented health crisis in Europe. To learn more about the theme, read the Thematic Guidelines.

The SUMP Award is presented together with the EU Urban Road Safety, and EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK awards, and honours local authorities that have developed a SUMP that satisfies the diverse transport needs of people and businesses, whilst improving quality of life.

Applications will be accepted from European local and regional public authorities that have legal competence in developing and implementing a SUMP on their territory.
