Urban Mobility Days 2020 - Digital Conference
29 Sep - 2 Oct 2020, 09:00 - 17:00
In light of the ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Commission's Urban Mobility Days Conference will be a fully digital event. The theme of the conference is 'zero-emission mobility.'
Previously intended to take place as a three-day conference in Brussels from 29 September to 1 October, the event's new online format will enable participants to join debates and exchange expertise on the most important urban mobility topics safely from their own desks.
Further details on the digital event programme and registration will follow very soon on the dedicated Urban Mobility Days page. Follow #urbanmobility on social media to keep up with the latest conference news.
The conference combines two leading events from Europe’s transport calendar: the CIVITAS Forum Conference and the European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). It will allow policymakers, local authorities, academics, NGOs, urban transport practitioners, urban planners and all those putting the SUMP concept into practice to share their experiences using a virtual forum.
During the digital conference, delegates will hear green mobility success stories from the CIVITAS Living Labs projects, and other examples of pioneering excellence from Europe and further afield. These will equip attendees with inspiration, tools, and know-how to further advance clean and sustainable transport in line with the European Green Deal.
With such a wealth of expertise and knowledge-sharing, Urban Mobility Days provides the ideal opportunity to digitally network, debate key issues, and exchange ideas on emerging transport trends and technologies and the latest developments in sustainable urban mobility planning.
The conference will go beyond transport by connecting zero-emission mobility initiatives with broader EU efforts to tackle climate change and make Europe a carbon-neutral continent by 2050.
Conference activities will also address the resilience of cities and their mobility systems in unforeseen circumstances, and take stock of lessons learned to date during the COVID-19 pandemic.
