Source: Civitas – As part of EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK, the European Commission annually presents the European SUMP Award to a planning authority which demonstrates excellence in sustainable urban mobility planning. The aim of the SUMP Award is to encourage the adoption of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) by local authorities across Europe and to reward outstanding achievements in each year’s thematic priority area.
Acknowledging current challenges and shifts in urban planning, this year local authorities are encouraged to showcase their outstanding plan to create a safer and healthier mobility system while reigniting trust in public transportation services.
The winner of the 9th SUMP Award was Greater Grenoble Area Mobility Authority (SMMAG) for Grenoble-Alpes SUMP as the jury was particularly impressed by SMMAG’s integrated and structured approach, which aims to meet the mobility needs of all public transport users, including socially vulnerable groups. The other finalists were Belgrade (Serbia) and Bilbao (Spain). Follow their excellence and submit an application for this year’s award!
