The BUMP Projects two main goals are:
To provide city planners, environmental and technical officers in local authorities with the knowledge and skills to plan and manage sustainable mobility in urban and peri-urban areas.
To support the most committed towns and cities to produce their own Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).
The BUMP Project use training packages to target city planners, as well as environmental and technical officers called to plan and manage sustainable mobility in urban and per-urban areas.
The work-programme contains a first training phase which is based upon a concrete, result-oriented approach and international sessions focusing on sharing know-how and fostering mutual learning.
The most committed local authorities will then be selected for in a coaching programme aimed at supporting them to produce their own SUMPs.
