How do cities imagine the evolution of their mobility environment in ten or twenty years? What are the main innovations that are changing the landscape of urban transport services for both passengers and goods?

The design and implementation of effective urban mobility policies and regulations is key to harness opportunities and mitigate negative impacts resulting from the changing urban mobility environment. In this final conference, SPROUT partners will present the project outcomes that will help cities to understand the transition in urban mobility and adequately plan policies to harness the impact of emerging mobility solutions.

Just Transition webinar series: Traffic Efficiency

 

28 March 2023 - 14:00-15:00 CET - Online

Towards digitalisation in transport, no one left behind

Digitalisation of transportation services benefits several stakeholders, including passengers. However, the rising use of digital technology in transportation services, such as shared mobility and public transportation, also places new demands on (possible) travellers (e.g. having a smartphone, having paid internet on it, or the skills to navigate it), and not everyone is able to meet these demands (or wants to).

How to ensure that digitalisation doesn’t create more inequality in transport? This webinar will explore this topic with insights from research and EU projects.

POLIS launches brand-new Just Transition Webinar series

 

Across several online events in February and March 2023, the upcoming POLIS Just Transition Webinar series will dive in, exploring what a Just Transition means for the entire urban mobility mix.

Building on our Just Transition Agenda launched in 2021, we will traverse the multifaceted ways affordability, gender-related mobility patterns, age, cognitive capacities (and more), can guide the future of our cities and regions.

A truly Just Transition is one which addresses imbalance and unfairness across the entire mobility spectrum. Thus, each webinar will address mobility justice from a specific perspective, in accordance with POLIS’ different Working Groups.

Webinar: Leveraging on co-creation to decarbonise heating systems

 

With the Decarb City Pipes 2050 project, we organise monthly online capacity-building sessions to address specific issues related to the heating and cooling transition. These sessions are based on experience sharing between peers, and invitation of key experts.

This session will focus on the role of co-creation in decarbonising heating systems. Decarbonisation is often seen as a matter of political will. However, ambitious policies need adhesion from citizens to be successful and impactful – hence the key role of co-creation. In this capacity-building session, we will bring concrete examples and favour return of experience to municipalities and other stakeholders engaged in the path of heating and cooling decarbonisation.

AGORA Dialogue "Making space for regenerative urbanism"

 

14 December, 13.00-17.00 (CET) online

Sustainable urbanism has long been dominated by a harm-reduction paradigm. In contrast to this, regenerative urbanism seeks to create net-positive outcomes for people and the planet. Central to regenerative urbanism is also the recognition of that all human activities are intimately connected to and dependent on ‘nature’. Join the discussions around soil, restoration and land-use, biophilic design and architecture, and the role of cultural and creative sectors in the transition!

Is it possible to measure the city's internationalisation strategy performance?

 

12th December  2022 – 11:00 CET

Registration link:

Strategies for city internationalisation originate from the need for varying levels of institutions or governments to strategically position themselves in the global sphere and offer opportunities for fostering partnerships towards shared global well-being. By doing so, metropolises and major areas have much to gain by engaging with the international sphere to tackle their local challenges.

However, measuring the outcomes of internationalisation strategies is challenging, especially given that data collection and analysis practices need to be standardised to measure how the actions implemented are aligned with the city's needs and objectives.

In the current context of multiple crises and increasing demand for building international connections that help governments to tackle their challenges, it is even more important to monitorize the city's internationalisation strategy.

For this webinar we invite cities whose internationalisation process has inspired others to share their experiences and insights. Together with this first-hand knowledge, we will launch a proposal of indicators to measure the performance of the city's internationalisation strategy.
