Urban Mobility Days 2020, the European Commission’s first large-scale urban mobility conference, will take place from September 29 to October 2, kicking off a week after the end of European Mobility Week.

The registration for Urban Mobility Days 2020 is open, according to Eltis, Europe’s main observatory on urban mobility, financed by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Mobility and Transport.

On the first day of the fully digital conference, registered participants will be able to contribute to discussions about what’s next for urban mobility in the EU; EU Sustainable Urban Mobility and CIVITAS Awards; and the EU’s contribution to the global urban mobility transition.

The following days will focus on a variety of topics, including synergy between mobility and tourism; planning for resilient and sustainable mobility; smart and electric mobility in cities; health and zero-emission mobility policy; affordable, accessible and inclusive mobility; infrastructure for walking and cycling; and citizens engagement for sustainable mobility.

The conference will also address the resilience of urban mobility in unforeseen circumstances and take stock of lessons learned to date during the COVID-19 pandemic.

European Mobility Week focuses on zero-emission mobility for all

The theme of this year’s European Mobility Week, from September 16 to 22, is zero-emission mobility for all. It is also the focus of the 9th SUMP Award, which will be handed during European Mobility Week.

The SUMP Award is the European Commission’s award aimed at encouraging the adoption of sustainable urban mobility plans (SUMPs) by local authorities across Europe. It is separate yet complementary to the European Mobility Week Award.

The SUMP Award 2019 went to the Belgian capital Brussels for a second time, while last year’s winners of the European Mobility Week Award were the Serbian city of Kruševac, in the category of larger municipalities, and Karditsa, Greece, for smaller municipalities.
