The European Commission launches a Public Consultation on the new "Urban Mobility Initiative" (UMI)


The new Urban Mobility Initiative will define the priorities of the European Commission for years to come in the area of sustainable urban mobility. Rupprecht Consult will support this public consultation by co-developing workshops and analysing the results.

The European Commission has recently adopted its "Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy". Its objective is to meet the targets of the European Green Deal, primarily the aim to reduce transport-related greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050. This strategy needs to be made more concrete and more specific with regard to mobility in cities. A related policy document with the name "Urban Mobility Initiative" (UMI) is being developed with an expected release date in late 2021. UMI will help the EU to build on its 2013 "Urban Mobility Package" and to meet its 2050 climate target. It proposes measures to encourage EU countries to develop urban transport systems that are safe, accessible, inclusive, affordable, smart, resilient and emission-free. The European Commission has launched an intensive consultation process, consisting of several workshops, the opportunity to submit position papers and an online survey for citizens to contribute to the creation of UMI. Rupprecht Consult supports this consultation process in two phases, first by co-developing workshops and by summarising their results. Second, Rupprecht Consult is developing and following a clear methodology to analyse qualitatively and quantitatively the data received during the consultation process, which includes workshop reports, position papers and survey answers. We then compile the result of the analysis into a final report. The public consultation is open until 23 September 2021.
