Registration is open for the 3rd European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, 12-13 April 2016, Bremen


The SUMP Conference is the principal annual event for all those involved in turning the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan concept into practice. Be one of the 300 delegates from across Europe to attend this free event. An outline agenda and the online registration are now available on the Eltis website.

       Join Commissioner Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport, for an interactive discussion on how the take-up of the SUMP concept can be accelerated across Europe, and hear from Nikolaus von Peter, Cabinet of the Commissioner for Transport, about the latest European Union policy initiatives. Rainer Bomba, State Secretary, German Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure, will also welcome you to the conference, and Mayor Anneli Hulthén, City of Gothenburg will be giving a keynote speech. The host city of Bremen has one of the lowest congestion rates in Europe and was winner of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Award 2014. A wide variety of excursions are arranged to demonstrate how planning processes are shaping: the creation of low-car (and low-carbon) neighbourhoods; the promotion of vehicle sharing; electrification of public transport; the optimised management of freight; and the enhancement of cycle infrastructure. Moreover, Bremen’s Senator for the Environment, Construction and Transportation, Dr. Joachim Lohse, extends a special invitation to all visiting Mayors and elected city representatives to join a guided tour of the city and for political talks. Combine your visit in Bremen with other sustainable mobility events taking place at times directly before and after the conference:
