    • Online Course "Institutional cooperation in sustainable urban mobility planning"

      Planning authorities responsible for the development of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans usually take the lead in the plan preparation process. However, they should also engage with other institutional actors as cooperation can bring value, knowledge and resources to process. Institutional cooperation can improve the acceptability of the SUMP, create ownership among institutional stakeholders and the public, and help to attract funding for measure implementation.

      This course has seven units (each consisting of one or several modules):
      • Unit 1: Introduction
      • Unit 2: Background and context
      • Unit 3: Preparing well for institutional cooperation
      • Unit 4: Identifying the relevant partners
      • Unit 5: Involving institutional stakeholders
      • Unit 6: Agreement on responsibilities
      • Unit 7: Conclusion

      Important: You do not need to complete the course all at once. The e-learning platform will save your last visit and always ask whether you would like to resume where you left off when you click on the link below (however, this only works if you use the same computer when returning to the course).
