CIVITAS ECCENTRIC thematic webinar: Addressing vulnerable groups and gender issues in SUMPs

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 - 14:00 to 15:30

Vulnerable groups such as children, the elderly, or people with disabilities depend on public transportation and an accessible public space to stay mobile. Women are the largest user group of public transport. Therefore, sustainable urban mobility planning needs to provide inclusive and accessible means of mobility for all of these groups. This webinar offers insights from mobility planners and practitioners into different aspects of the topic: Solutions and mobility measures addressing gender issues, improving walkability for all, and offering better mobility for children and the elderly.
