Welcome

Introduction to the TIDE project and to this course on integrating innovative mobility measures with a sustainable urban mobility plan

1. Course overview

This course consists of 8 units. It offers an overview of sustainable urban mobility planning and what an SUMP is for, describes the ever-growing importance of SUMPs in Europe, identifies some of the challenges of integrating individual innovative mobility measures into the larger context of an SUMP and offers suggestions to overcome those challenges.

We've tried to keep the course concrete and hands-on; each unit has a homework task that involves examining and researching your own local context or looking at examples from other places to see how they might apply to your context.

You will have the opportunity to learn from other course participants from other cities and to exchange ideas with them through the course forum. If you have a colleague who is also interested in the topic, you are welcome to do the course as a team. We (Bernard and Bonnie, the course moderators) will join the discussion on the forum regularly, offering comments, questions and feedback.
