Few more weeks for Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) Award

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) Award recognizes local authorities that have developed a Mobility Plan that satisfies the diverse transport needs of people and businesses, whilst improving quality of life. Each year, the award highlights a different aspect of mobility planning. The theme of the 6th SUMP Award is: Shared mobility in sustainable urban mobility planning.

 

 The European Commission's award for sustainable urban mobility planning was launched in 2012, and has been presented five times. The aim of the award scheme is to encourage the adoption of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) by local authorities across Europe and to reward outstanding achievements in each year’s thematic priority area. The SUMP Award is presented alongside the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK Award.

 

Cities are not required to have completed the entire process of developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan in order to be eligible for the award. The award concept is in line with the  Eltis SUMP guidelines which define a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan as a ‘strategic plan designed to satisfy the mobility needs of people and businesses in cities and their surroundings for a better quality of life. It builds on existing planning practices and takes due consideration of integration, participation, and evaluation principles’. The guidelines provide information on the necessary actions to be undertaken for different aspects and at different stages of the plan, and are a recommended resource.

 

Deadline for applications is 3rd November 2017.
