You can find more information about this event here.

Currently, The CIVITAS Forum Network includes close to 250 cities from 37 countries from Europe and beyond, that have formally committed to clean and sustainable urban transport. The Conference therefore is a fantastic opportunity for vivid dialogue and knowledge exchange between cities and European politicians on the one hand, and experts in the field of urban mobility on the other. Furthermore, as always, the Forum Conference will be a significant occasion for high level representatives of the European Commission and the CIVITAS community to share news and information on its policy and programme and to hear the views of local politicians, mobility practitioners, academics, and NGOs.
