PROSPERITY is a project funded by the EU’s H-2020 program to promote the design and implementation of Sustainable Urban
Mobility Plans (SUMPs) in 12 EU countries and 250 municipalities.
Supporting local and national authorities to improve the quality and uptake of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs)
There is a gap between the needs and demands of the cities that should develop and implement SUMPs, and higher administrative institutions that should prepare the ground and provide (national) support programmes to encourage cities to develop and implement SUMPs.
CIVITAS PROSPERITY helps to close this gap by facilitating a unique approach of involvement and activation. This happens through two ways. On the one hand, the project offers regular peer-to-peer exchange between the national level authorities from different countries. And on the other hand, through a regular national development process in each country, in which the national level interacts with the cities of the country.
CIVITAS PROSPERITY’s goal is to promote and support a broad take-up of of SUMPs especially in regions and cities where the take up is so far low.
