5th SUMP Award theme is Freight

The SUMP award scheme, organised in the framework of the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK, acknowledges the important role of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) in striving for a more sustainable urban mobility in cities. Every year, the SUMP Award is presented to cities and regions that show excellence in developing and implementing their sustainable urban mobility plans. The award focuses on a different thematic aspect of sustainable urban mobility planning each year.

This year, the thematic will be “Freight in sustainable urban mobility planning”.

This year, cities which do particularly well regarding the integration of freight in their SUMPs will have the opportunity to submit their application from the 5 September 2016. The call for applications will close on 28 October 2016. All documents will be made available online at www.mobilityweek.eu/sump-award. And an online info-day will be organised on 5 September.

Who will succeed Malmö, winner of the 4th SUMP Award?

The name of the winner of the SUMP Award will be announced at the annual Award Ceremony, in spring 2017. Both the 5th SUMP Award and the 2016 EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK Award will be given during this ceremony, traditionally taking place in Brussels.

All local and regional authorities from the EU and the EEA, that have initiated or completed the development of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan are encouraged to take part in the competition.
