On the 3rd of May, 2022 the INTERREG Dynaxibility4CE project and Magyar CIVINET organized a joint online event where the results of the EU-funded international project were presented. The event titled “How to plan for sustainable mobility” attracted over 30 professionals and experts from municipalities and transport companies. The first part of the event comprised of presentations focusing on planning sustainable urban mobility and applying SUMP in smaller cities and Budapest, while during the second block the presenters talked about the results and pilots implemented within the project.
The first presentation was held by Zsuzsanna Katona from the Ministry of Finance who talked about the funding opportunities for smaller cities to implement or develop their existing sustainable urban mobility strategies. Tünde Hajnal from the Centre for Budapest Transport (BKK) talked about the capital’s SUMP (from 2019) which is being reviewed now. The presentation by Dr. András Szele from Mobilissimus was about the experiences of implementing SUMP in smaller Hungarian cities. This was backed by the presentation of Morgane Juliat from Rupprecht Consult who is one of the contributors of the recently published SUMP Topic Guide for Smaller Cities and Towns. She talked about the similarities and differences of SUMPs for bigger and smaller cities.
