3 e-courses on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans launched!


The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project offers a series of free e-courses to anyone interested in learning more about sustainable urban mobility planning.

The SUMP learning programme for mobility practitioners consists in total of 7 e-courses. The courses tackle different phases in the SUMP process starting from how to initiate a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) and prepare a SUMP vision in cooperation with various stakeholders, elaborate the SUMP strategy and select SUMP measures and on how to finally implement SUMP.  

Each course contains several modules and concrete case examples from European cities. Some of the courses also include exercises that help to review your city’s own SUMP practices.
