  • Unit 1: Introduction

    The overall mission of SOLUTIONS is to support the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions in Europe and other regions in the world, in particular in Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean. This course addresses how integrated planning and the development and implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans can contribute to solving urban transport problems and achieving more sustainable mobility in cities and regions.

    This unit spotlights the key characteristics a SUMP should have, how the SUMP development process is structured and introduces European and international planning practices.

  • Unit 4: Prepare well!

    There are many bodies and levels with whom you will need to communicate and cooperate in the context of sustainable urban mobility planning. Therefore, the key to a smooth and successful SUMP development process is to plan the process well and to develop a strategy: know where your city is coming from, where you want it to go, and the actors and resources needed to get you there.

    Now you are ready to get started with the main steps of developing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan: coming up with a vision, targets and concrete measures.
