Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning in Gdynia

Dear UBC Friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Joint Conference of the UBC Commission on Transportation and Commission on Environment and the City of Gdynia entitled „Baltic Sea Region advancing towards Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning”. The meeting will be held in Gdynia (Poland) on 23-24th October 2014 and is organised within Baltic Sea Region Competence Centre on SUMP, established within the CIVITAS DYN@MO project. Many cities find it a challenge to elaborate SUMPs, which require a high level of stakeholders’ participation and establishing a detailed complex planning process. The conference will be organised with a view to supporting cities, focusing on the Baltic Sea Region in their efforts to elaborate the SUMP.

As we are all aware, implementation of the SUMP in the cities is strongly recommended by the European Commission. The European Commission issued an official communication to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions dated 17th of December 2013. Its purpose is to further support European cities in leading their transportation related projects, so that they can more effectively implement the EU policy of competitive and resource efficient mobility. The main idea of this document is to convince member countries to create guidelines common for all cities, while taking into account their unique character. These guidelines are supposed to ultimately help cities to develop and implement Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP).

Thus we wish to invite you to take part in our Conference in Autumn. Please send the registration form by 10th October 2014 to kontakt@mobilnagdynia.pl.

Attached you can find the draft programme of the Conference, registration form and practical information.

We look forward to meeting you in Gdynia.

Yours faithfully,

Andrzej Bień                                                      Marek Stępa

Chairman                                                          Deputy Mayor of Gdynia

UBC Commission on Transportation
