Dear Mr, Mrs,

On behalf of the European Platform on Sustainable Urban Transport Plans in cooperation with JASPERS (Joint Assistance to Support Projects in European Regions) we are pleased to invite you to a seminar on:

'Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans'

at: University of Piraeus, Piraeus, June, 18th 2015 from 14.00 till 17.30.

In order to assist cities in Europe with developing plans that effectively address urban mobility problems, the European Commission has set out a concept of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan that has emerged from a broad exchange between stakeholders and planning experts across the European Union. The concept describes the main features of a modern and sustainable urban mobility and transport plan. Furthermore the Commission has supported the development of guidelines on drafting and implementing such plans.

This event targets at national, regional and local stakeholders (cities) interested and /or involved in urban transport and mobility planning. The aims of the workshop are to:

  • Update you about the state of play of the Polish policy on urban transport planning.
  • Inform you about the European support your city can access when preparing, developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.
  • Make you familiar with the plan concept, the main steps and the benefits.
  • Discuss barriers to the application of the plan concept in your city and how to overcome them.

A tentative seminar agenda and venue details as well as travel information are added. The workshop is free of charge.

This event is organized with support of the Ministry of Public works of Cyprus.
