Call open for cities to join the last SUMP learning programme!

Good news for cities developing Sustainable Urban Mobility plans! Cities have now a possibility to apply for the CIVITAS SUMPs-Up call and join the group of 100 cities learning and exchanging about SUMPs.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up is looking for up to 25 planning authorities to join the 5th SUMP learning programme (SLP) which starts in May 2019.  Several cities from the Baltic Sea Region have already joined the previous learning programmes.

Programme format and content

The six month programmes combine knowledge transfer and testing and assessment with learning on concepts, approaches, tools, and methodologies for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) development.

The activities blend online and face-to-face learning and exchange. Participants also benefit from a city-to-city review and support from SUMPs-Up mobility experts.

The programme will focus on the SUMP implementation, financing and procurement. Activities will include writing and reviewing a SUMP Action Plan, monitoring and evaluating the impact of measures, procuring services, and identifying new challenges.

Who should apply?

SUMPs-Up is seeking mobility and transport professionals active in local or regional transport planning authorities with experience of sustainable mobility planning. Cities currently elaborating their first SUMP are also encouraged to apply.

Alongside urban or regional authorities, local consortiums containing such an authority can also apply. All applicants must be based in a Member State of the European Union or a country in the European Economic Area.

For more information about the  eligibility criteria check the SUMPs-Up website.
