CIVITAS Making Innovation for MObility Sustainable Actions

Objective

Since 2002, CIVITAS Initiative has been able to attract a raising interest among local authorities in Europe, becoming a true point of reference, even beyond the boundaries of the European Union. This is because worldwide, massive resources are poured into research and development of new solutions for a better urban environment. However, funds often target individual initiatives, which doubtlessly procure knowledge advancements in the fields of application. What sets CIVITAS apart is the integrative nature of the approach it advocates, based on comprehensive and innovative handling of energy and transport policy. The objectives of competitive, secure, safe, and environmentally friendly mobility must be conjugated and complemented with the involvement of national, regional and local governments, and that of citizens and industry. The partners of CIVITAS MIMOSA see in CIVITAS the ideal instrument to better understand the frameworks, processes and technicalities required to successfully introduce and test innovative, courageous and integrated strategies for a clean, energy-efficient and sustainable urban transport. The possibility to do so with a group of peers makes it all the more stimulating and meaningful, as it supplies local authorities with policies that are both validated by widespread experimentation and legitimised by the concurrent adoption in other cities. The CIVITAS MIMOSA approach is based on a clear set of measures that have been developed by: -Monitoring traffic flows and analysis of mobility demand and supply; -Identifying problems and opportunities; -Planning initiatives that public administrations and citizens can implement to tackle the problems; -Identify the most suitable demonstration actions for CIVITAS (i.e. a mix of tested good practices and bold, innovative actions), pushing citizens towards the desired behavioural shift; -Implement the actions and showcase them for replication or inspiration in other urban contexts.
