The Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI) and the urban mobility SOLUTIONS network have selected cities and individuals from Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America to become active Urban Change Maker!
The SOLUTIONSnetwork and the UEMI have selected cities and individuals to work together on the implementation of sustainable urban mobility measures. This is part of a new partnership with the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC) and the European Green Vehicles Initiative (EGVI) as part of the EU-funded projectFUTURE-RADAR.
The mission of the SOLUTIONS and UEMI partnerships is to support the take-up of sustainable urban mobility solutions in cities across the world and foster the integration of urban electric mobility solutions into sustainable transport strategies.
First Urban Change Maker Training in Berlin
A training on urban mobility solutions, governance, finance and implementation was organised in cooperation between the FUTURE RADAR project, the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI) and the Urban Pathways project. With almost 100 participants from over 30 countries we discussed concrete low-carbon urban mobility solutions to deliver on the New Urban Agenda. The training addressed key challenges and opportunities for sustainable urban mobility, showcased innovative urban mobility solutions that are readily available for take-up and presented governance and finance solutions. The training was be part of the Urban Implementation Action Days from 16 to 20 October in Berlin.
Leading cities Leading cities will share their expertise in the development and implementation of sustainable urban mobility solutions. They benefit from the mutual learning process and the knowledge sharing with other cities in the world within the context of SOLUTIONS and the UEMI and provide input on successful innovative and transferable urban transport solutions they have implemented and share their expertise with take-up and training cities through knowledge-sharing events and input for feasibility studies.
Take-up cities Take-up cities explore options for the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions in cooperation with the team, support implementation processes that have already started in the take-up cities and initiate the development of complementary measures. The cities are in the process of developing feasibility studies at city level, including:
develop packages of solutions building on existing, planned and potentially additional measures;
test the economic viability and public acceptability of measures, assess costs and economic, social and environmental benefits;
consider institutional and governance issues along with factors of success and barriers that may accelerate, delay or inhibit uptake, and thus, influence public acceptability of proposed solutions.
