Join CIVITAS online training sessions this summer

Take a shot of sustainable mobility this summer by joining a series of four upcoming CIVITAS training sessions. Taking place this Summer (sessions in June, July and September), they will deal with burning, crosscutting urban mobility topics.  

The CIVITAS e-courses and trainings have been developed by DTV Capacity Building as part of the CIVITAS ELEVATE Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme

Do not miss this opportunity to plant some inspirational sustainable mobility seeds and increase your knowledge and skillset for your work and projects. The courses are accessible to all – no matter your level of experience, your role, or your organization. Join to get up to speed on the four following themes:  

  • Evidencing active mobility projects through economics – 23 June  
  • Creating attractive cities – steering through parking management and access regulation schemes – 30 June  
  • Transition management – instruments to making the change – 7 July 
  • Citizen science – the miracle of traffic counting and citizen engagement – 2 September  

The series’ concept 

The training sessions are short, light and interactive. You have time to meet, engage and work together with peers from across Europe. In addition, every session is free! The only things required are enthusiasm and engagement. Below are key details of the sessions: 

  • Each session lasts 3.5 hours from 09:00 – 12:30 CEST.  
  • Plenty of breaks are included. 
  • Hear from inspirational expert speakers. 
  • Cases and success stories from cities across Europe 
  • Take part in group work and interaction. 

Who should participate?
Do you recognise yourself in one or more of the following statements? If so, the training sessions are perfect for you: 

  • I am involved in urban mobility projects in my city. 
  • I am involved in a European-funded and/or CIVITAS projects. 
  • I have seen many mobility pilots and experiments, but I want to make these long-lasting, 
  • I am in touch with citizens, and they often provide me with ideas. Some are good, some less so. Despite this, I think their engagement is valuable for fostering sustainable urban mobility. 
  • Often decision-makers ask – “what is the benefit of active mobility projects and why should I invest”? I would like to be able to better argue my case. 
  • I think areas in my city could become more attractive and nicer places if there were less motor traffic.

Following each training session, you will understand the basic principles of the training topic and be aware of how these topics could be of benefit to your mobility project in your local context.
