SUMPORT project: training on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs)
SUMPORT is a project funded under the Interreg Mediterranean EU programme.
SUMPORT’s main objective is the improvement of sustainable mobility in MED port cities, by fostering the uptake of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans in the MED area, with a specific focus on integrating city- and port-related traffic flows in the sustainable public transport planning.
Trainings for the drafting of SUMPs based on the EU SUMP concept elaborated by the European Commission and the EU guidelines are a key component of SUMPORT, thanks to which MED port cities not having or developing SUMPs will be able to gain knowledge and ability to draft this planning tool in their local contexts.
TRT is in charge of the development and provision of the training programme, based on four modules to be delivered respectively in Valencia (ES), Koper (SI), Igoumentisa (EL) and Limassol (CY).
The training programme is intended to provide public officials and local practitioners of SUMPORT cities with the basic knowledge useful to successfully complete a SUMP planning cycle.
The proposed approach is based on the following pillars: face-to-face training offering both information and inspiration from experts, training relevant to the particular target (i.e. port cities), information streamlined and condensed (as there are enough manuals and guidance documents already).
