SWITCH Progress Meeting

The SWITCH progress meeting was held in our office in Cologne on December 1st and 2nd. Participants from Gdansk (Poland), Antwerp (Belgium), Vienna (Austria), Donastia/San Sebastian (Spain) and London Borough of Hounslow (UK) successfully presented first results from their behaviour change campaigns.   RC is responsible for Follower Cities which would like to adapt the SWITCH approach to a local campaign. 11 cities have already drafted an implementation scenario for their cities which will be reviewed by our technical partners like Walk21, the European Cyclist’s Federation, and more.   In a meeting break nearly all participants took advantage to test the new bike sharing system in Cologne. Not even the bad weather could stop the group. And a big compliment to Steven Windey (red circled) who cycled to the progress meeting! His starting point was his hometown Antwerp.

SUMP Self-Assessment Tool launched in Brussels and Istanbul!

Is your mobility plan a genuine Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan? You can now find out using the free, online SUMP Self-Assessment Tool available on www.eltis.org The SUMP Self-Assessment Tool has been designed to enable planning authorities to quickly assess the compliance of their plan with the European Commission’s SUMP Guidelines (January 2014). Self-assessment is based on a set of 100 clear and transparent yes-no questions that follow the steps in the well-known SUMP preparation cycle. By working through the questionnaire during plan preparation or once a plan has been finalised, planning authorities can gain feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of their approach. For anybody who is not yet familiar with the concept or the terminology, the Self-Assessment questionnaire is also linked to a newly published online version of the SUMP Guidelines, an informative SUMP Glossary and a range of online learning resources on the Mobility Academy website. On 20 November 2015, the [...]

Pilot version of SUMP Self-Assessment Scheme launched for peer review

Rupprecht Consult has developed a pioneering SUMP Self-Assessment Scheme that is currently undergoing a period of testing by planning authorities and mobility practitioners. The free, online self-assessment tool enables planning authorities to demonstrate the compliance of their mobility planning process with the European Commission‘s Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) concept.   Based on the plan-making steps of the „Guidelines – developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan“ (January 2014), the self-assessment scheme comprises 100 questions divided into nine sections. These cover the early stages of planning, such as the commitment of a city to sustainable mobility principles, through to scenario development, mobility measure selection and finally plan adoption.   The rationale for providing a SUMP self-assessment tool and the structure of the scheme were explained during webinars held on 22nd and 29th October 2015. The subsequent pilot phase for testing of [...]

SWITCH 2nd Newsletter cover

2nd Newsletter of the SWITCH project released

The second issue of the SWITCH newsletter has just been released. The project is now officially half way through. Many activities have happened in the past months and we are pleased to present a round-up of developments from SWITCH and our implementation cities.   Most cities have launched their local campaigns and have engaged with hundreds of individuals, children, parents, teachers, employees, and seniors, to get them on board and encourage a shift to walking and cycling or use of public transport.   A set of fact sheets on the local campaigns (in national languages) are available to download from the website. Our SWITCH experts have worked hard to develop a sound methodology about how to apply the SWITCH approach to travel behaviour change campaigns.   The SWITCH toolbox will guide you through all phases of a campaign from scoping to segmentation of the target audience, developing  service  packages  and monitoring change. The SWITCH Toolbox will be unveiled to a wider [...]
