UBC EnvCom is a partner in the new three-year ELTISplus project on promoting and enhancing sustainable urban mobility across Europe. The project objective is twofold: to maintain, improve and enhance the image, awareness, use and usefulness of ELTIS - the European Local Transport Information Service – portal and to gain further awareness and acceptance of the concept Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) and to accelerate the development and uptake of SUMPs by competent authorities across Europe.
The ELTISplus project partners will organize a series of workshops and other events on sustainable urban mobility plans in all the EU Member States. UBC EnvCom is responsible for the workshops in the Baltic Sea Region countries. The workshops are targeted to cities (e.g. politicians, decision-makers, authorities), researchers, consultants and other implementers such as urban and transport planners, and to energy, health and environmental actors. The first national events have taken place in 2011 and the rest will be organised during 2012.
Guidelines- Developing and Implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan
To support the local planners and implementers to develop their sustainable mobility planning Guidelines - Developing and Implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan have been created by the Eltisplus consortium. The Guidelines explain the essential steps involved in developing such Plans. They include good practice examples, tools and references to illustrate each step and help you apply the Guidelines.
The document is aimed at practitioners in urban transport and mobility as well as other stakeholders who would be involved in the preparation and implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans.
You can download the guidelines here.
Europe's biggest portal on Urban Mobility - Eltis
The Eltisplus project consortium is also maintaining the Eltis portal on urban mobility. It offers information and concrete advice on how to develop urban transport systems that use less energy while improving the mobility of freight and passengers and the quality of life of its citizens. In Eltis you can find the news, case studies, video clips, tools for practitioner and many more… related to urban mobility. You can also become a friend of ELTIS. As a friend you will receive the ELTIS-newsletter, a password that enables you download ELTIS videos and photos, browse case studies, news items and tools for practitioners.
Eltis warmly welcomes all Baltic Sea Region cities to share their good experiences and examples with other European cities. If you want present a case study example from your city in Eltis please contact: Maija Rusanen, maija.rusanen(at)ubc.net.
