CIVITAS VANGUARD Effective Solutions for green urban transport - Brussels Workshop
The first workshop in the "Effective solutions for green urban transport - Learning from CIVITAS cities" series aimed to give an insight into the innovative sustainable mobility solutions tested through the CIVITAS Initiative. It therefore provides a highly relevant learning resource for the SUMP process of measure selection. Presentations included introductions to the CIVITAS definitions of "collective passenger transport" and "safety and security". Case studies presented at the workshops were:
- Perugia, Italy - measures include: clean (methane-powered) bus fleet; solar-powered bus stops with wifi; minimetro light rail; and improvements to public transport interchanges.
- Nantes, France - measures include: Nantes Vertou railway link, providing a large scale southeastern sustainable transport corridor; highway remodelling in favour of buses, cycling and walking; and creation of new Chronobus network.
- Bremen, Germany - Smart ticketing measure
- Ghent, Belgium - Trammelantbus measure: youth offending prevention through participation
- San Sebastian, Spain - Introduction of road safety measures including speed restrictions
- Krakow, Poland - Introduction of transport safety database.
PUMAS Transnational Seminar on Visions for Sustainable Mobility in Metropolitan Areas
This was the first in a series of transnational seminars held in the PUMAS project. Project partners and experts in such areas as urban planning, transport planning, environmental sciences met in Schwechat, Austria (near Vienna) to:
- Discuss the cutting edge of sustainable mobility
- Compare and further develop visions for SUMP in metropolitan areas in the Alpine Space.
- Practices from Vienna Metropolitan Region
- The Approach of the Styrian Public Transport Association towards Sustainable Mobility
CIVITAS VANGUARD - Webinar on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans
The webinar provided a forum for the presentation of SUMP experiences in cities, from those that are well advanced, to those that are just beginning the process. Presentations covered:
- An analysis of the SUMP-readiness of Dutch municipal traffic plans (Netherlands)
- SUMP preparation in Skopje, Macedonia
- Aberdeen City Council SUMP, UK - an award-winning example
- EU funding and SUMPs, the Romania experience.
CH4LLENGE - Gent Workshop on Participation
To support cities at different stages of working with SUMP, the CH4LLENGE project organised four in-depth training workshops on the four SUMP challenges. These were targeted at CH4LLENGE Partner cities and Follower cities, with the objective of facilitating the mutual exchange of experience. This first SUMP Training Workshop, organised in Gent, Belgium (July 2nd – 3rd 2013) focused on stakeholder participation and citizen involvement in the SUMP process. The host city Gent was well placed to invite the CH4LLENGE cities to participate in a workshop on this topic, given their rich experience of stakeholder and citizen involvement within Gent’s own SUMP planning processes. Presentations include case study information for Berlin, Bremen, Dresden and Gent. Workshop presentations and minutes are included in the zip file.Show details
CH4LLENGE - Leeds Workshop on Institutional Cooperation
To support cities at different stages of working with SUMP, the CH4LLENGE project organised four in-depth training workshops on the four SUMP challenges. These were targeted at CH4LLENGE Partner cities and Follower cities, with the objective of facilitating the mutual exchange of experience. The host of this workshop was the county of West Yorkshire in the UK, and more specifically the Strategic Transport Authority for the five West Yorkshire local district authorities, METRO. With their broad experience in institutional cooperation and interesting stories to tell based on their own experience, they were the perfect institution to turn to for this training! The main topics of the workshop were: institutional cooperation - basics; institutional cooperation - best practice examples; and start of the activities on local SUMP roadmaps.Show details

CH4LLENGE - Amiens Workshop on Measure Selection
To support cities at different stages of working with SUMP, the CH4LLENGE project organised four in-depth training workshops on the four SUMP challenges. These were targeted at CH4LLENGE Partner cities and Follower cities, with the objective of faciltating the mutual exchange of experience. The third workshop, organised in Amiens, France (1-2 April 2014) focussed on the process of measure selection.
Once a city has specified its objectives and identified the problems to be overcome, the next step is to identify possible policy measures. The resulting long list of possible measures then needs to be assessed for appropriateness, resulting in a shortlist of more promising measures. These need to be specified and assessed in more detail for application. An effective package of measures can combine those policy measures which are themselves most effective in ways which achieve synergy – by making the whole more effective than the sum of the parts – and which increase acceptability. The benefits of improved procedures for identifying effective measures and packages are thus in: making the process more efficient; making the policy content more acceptable and affordable; and, above all, in making the resulting policy more cost-effective.
The first day of the workshop introduced participants to the basics of measure identification, presented exemplary measure selection processes in the CH4LLENGE cities and showed how the decision-support tool KonSULT, developed by the Institute for Transport Studies of the University of Leeds, can be applied. The second day will paid attention to the principles of packaging of measures, presented examples, looked at how measure packages can be identified with KonSULT, and discussed barriers and solutions.
Game about the city year 2015
City simulation is a board game about the future of the city. To create the best development and economic growth it is necessary to work together across stakeholders and interests.
In the game different stakeholders with defined roles collaborate on how to create the best development in terms of Citizen satisfaction, Accessibility, Climate and Economic.
More groups play at the same time. The winner is the team with the largest nummer of point (the sum of Citizen satisfaction, Accessibility, Climate and Economic)

CH4LLENGE - Dresden Workshop on Monitoring and Evaluation
To support cities at different stages of working with SUMP, the CH4LLENGE project organised four in-depth training workshops on the four SUMP challanges. These were targeted at CH4LLENGE Partner cities and Follower cities, with the objective of facilitating the mutual exchange of experience. The fourth and last workshop, hosted in Dresden, Germany (July 2-3rd 2014), looked at monitoring and evaluation in mobility and transport planning. Monitoring and evaluation activities are a key part of the SUMP cycle. They are important tools in the development and implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans that serve the purpose of timely identification of problems, potential successes and the need for readjustment of a SUMP and its measure packages. The workshop included the presentation of monitoring and evaluation processes for France, in particular Amiens, the Covenant of Mayors Sustainable Enrgy Action Plan process, Dresden and West Yorkshire.Show details
