SUMPs-Up is one of the three projects related to sustainable urban mobility plans under the European Union’s CIVITAS 2020 initiative. It brings together eight partner organisations and seven partner cities, all of whom are seeking to help European cities to introduce cleaner and more sustainable mobility. Through the participation of TheTA, Thessaloniki is represented at the consortium.
The project assists planning authorities to overcome the barriers that prevent or make it difficult to implement SUMPs: capacity building, tailored information, and support during development and implementation phases will equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to do so.
Planning authorities and their staff will be involved in all stages of the project, with the focus on countries and areas where SUMP take-up is particularly low.
