Challenges of regional mobility concepts – How to accomplish the interaction between local and regional level?

2nd Workshop “Regional Concept for Mobility and Transport Frankfurt RhineMain” within the EU-project ENDURANCE

Period Thursday, July 9th – Thursday, July 9th, 2015
Location Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Currently, many municipalities in Germany are on their way to further develop the often still infrastructure based transport development planning towards a more comprehensive and sustainable mobilty planning process. This is partly due to comply with legal requirements e.g. from European clean air and noise reduction policy. But also the European approach of establishing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans and its integration in the German guidelines on integrated transport development planning by the Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV) contributed to this process, also reflecting a cultural change in the overall perspectives on mobility and transport issues in modern societies.

Meanwhile, also a number of regions started to work on common mobility strategies and policies, such as the Hannover and Cologne regions - and so did Frankfurt RhineMain, lead by IVM, earlier this year. But how to organise an efficient and durable interaction between the local and regional level? Which measures are crucial to be adressed at this level and how to shape and set up a targeted participation process?  These and further questions should be discussed during this workshop, which is organised by IVM as National Focal Point within the EU-funded project ENDURANCE - European SUMP-network.

We are especially happy to welcome Mrs. Dominique Ameele from the Flemish Department for Mobility and responsible for the Flemish SUMP framework programme as well as Patrick Auwerx from Mobiel 21, ENDURANCE National Focal Point for Belgium as guests. They will provide an unique inside view of the flemish mobility planning system integrating the regional and local level with focussing on aspects such as auditing, evaluation, participation and further strategic development
