Breakfast at Sustainability's: SUMP 2.0 - Reshaping the EU SUMP Guidelines

Office of Basque Country Delegation in Brussels, Rue des Deux Eglises 27, 1000 Brussels, Belgium,
12 December 2018, 09:30 - 13:00

Since their launch in 2013, the EU's SUMP Guidelines have been the main reference document for developing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).

Yet the many societal and technological developments and insight gained from SUMP implementation over the last five years mean an update of the Guidelines is due.

SUMPs-Up is organising an event on 12 December 2018, 09.15 - 13.00, in Brussels (Belgium), as part of the SUMP 2.0 process to revise the Guidelines. This also forms the 28th event in ICLEI's long-running Breakfast at Sustainability's (B@S) series.

For local, national and European level officials working on SUMPs, this represents a prime opportunity to make a crucial contribution to improving the next generation of SUMP Guidelines and shape EU mobility policy.

Following an opening address from DG MOVE on the importance of SUMP 2.0, three cities with different SUMP profiles will discuss their experiences of using the Guidelines and the improvements they think are needed.

This sets the scene for an interactive stakeholder workshop in which participants will be able to give feedback on specific sections of the Guidelines and put forward the good practice examples and methods they believe should be included in the new document.

A networking breakfast and lunch provide further chances to meet and swap ideas with SUMP peers from across Europe.
