Urban Mobility Days side-session - Concepts and tools to address the challenge of meeting carbon emission targets in urban areas
2 Oct 2020, 14:00 - 15:30
As part of Urban Mobility Days 2020, CIVITAS SUMP-PLUS will host its own side session on Friday 2 October, 14:00 -15:30.
To meet the bold carbon emission targets being set for urban areas, cities need assistance. The CIVITAS SUMP-PLUS is creating a series of tailor-made tools and concepts to help them reach these.
The session will open by introducing the project's central concepts, namely setting out mobility transition pathways, forging cross-sectoral links, and building new, robust forms of public-private partnerships and business models. Read more.
Moving from theory to practice, attendees will then find out more about how the SUMP-PLUS concepts are being applied in its six City Labs.
Next up is a description of how the space syntax theory and spatial accessibility analysis is being applied in the project in the City Labs of Alba Iulia and Platanias, both of which are small cities. Read more.
Transport for Greater Manchester will then discuss the work that the Greater Manchester city region is doing within the project to create links between mobility and health. This forms part of its broader decarbonisation goals.
Finally, discover the stakeholder and citizen engagement tools used in SUMP-PLUS to foster public involvement in policy development - the local mobility forum, city integrator, and citizen engagement platform. The experiences of the six SUMP-PLUS cities in this area will also be discussed.
