Poly-SUMP, Polycentric Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, aims to develop a sustainable mobility planning methodology in polycentric regions – areas characterised by several centres, where services and goods, and therefore transport needs, are scattered in different towns.
Planning mobility in these areas is complex, as several municipalities, sometimes even from different countries, and many stakeholders are involved. Poly-SUMP offers a methodology for poly-centric regions to overcome barriers and to build a constructive dialogue among all involved actors in order to reach a common vision of sustainable mobility.
The six participating regions in Europe, represented by Regione Marche (Italy), Central Alentejo (Portugal), Central Macedonia (Greece), the Heart of Slovenia (Slovenia), Rhine Alp (Austria) and Parkstad Limburg (the Netherlands), test concrete planning processes towards the adoption of mobility plans, and check the transferability of the approach to six other regions in Europe.
Poly-SUMP offers you the ideal platform where to learn what its regions have achieved, and how you can replicate the results in your own context.
