Breakfast at Sustainability's gathers Europe's SUMP community to reshape key guidelines
The latest Breakfast at Sustainability's gathered over 50 people from Europe's SUMP (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans) community to discuss the forthcoming update of the EU SUMP Guidelines.
Organised as part of CIVITAS (City VITAlity and Sustainability) SUMPs-Up, the event took place in Brussels (Belgium) on Wednesday 12 December 2018.
An interactive workshop formed the second half of the morning. Participants, whose backgrounds ranged from cities, industry, academia and civil society to EU and international institutions, expressed their wishes for the updated Guidelines.
Funding was a recurring topic, with information on possible funding sources and comparisons of measure costs desired content. Such figures help overcome a common barrier - political reluctance.
