SUMP guidelines 2nd edition - new era of SUMPs!

Since the first edition of the SUMP Guidelines was published in late 2013, it was THE main European reference document for urban transport and mobility practitioners involved in the development and implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). Many cities in Europe and around the world have developed SUMPs, while numerous European Union-funded projects and programmes have contributed valuable knowledge that helped cities to develop this new generation of mobility plans.
In the years since 2013, major new trends in many areas of urban mobility have emerged and a wealth of practical SUMP experience has been acquired. This meant it was time to rethink and update the original guidelines. A comprehensive update process of European SUMP guidance was started in 2018, including a revision of the guidelines itself, as well as the development of a range of complementary guides on specific aspects of SUMP.

UBC SCC, as a partner in many SUMP-related projects in the Baltic Sea Region and beyond, was actively involved into the review and update of the guideline. Not least through involving many of our member cities with great experience in sustainable urban mobility planning to be part of the good practice cases.

In Graz, during the CIVITAS Forum 2019, the 2nd edition of the SUMP guidelines was finally launched, together with a set of thematic guides that is focusing on a variety of mobility-related topics!
