Three new videos have been launched showcasing the sustainable mobility activities of the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK award winners for 2019, and the winner of the 8th SUMP award. The videos were filmed in Kruševac (Serbia), Karditsa (Greece), and Brussels (Belgium) and feature interviews with key mobility experts within the municipalities.
The videos showcase how the award-winning cities are working to improve the citizen’s preferred choice of transport to sustainable mobility. Through these videos’ viewers can get sneak peek into the innovation activities and measures of the cities which won the EUROPEANMOBILITYWEEK and SUMP Awards.

Also in an interview with Bruno Van Loveren, Strategy and Programming Director at Mobility Planning Authority in Brussels Capital Region (Belgium), he expressed about winning the 8th Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) Award, what it means to the city, and shared advice that he would give to other cities looking to follow in their footsteps.
On designing the SUMP, he said: “I would like to quote the words of the jury, which underline the way our SUMP conceives the city as an ecosystem, and the impressive participation system that has been put in place. These two elements, in my opinion, are intimately linked. It is through involving all stakeholders and listening to citizens that we have been able to gradually take into account all the dimensions of the mobility policy.”
When asked about what does winning the SUMP Award mean to the city of Brussels, he expressed: “We are obviously very proud to have received this award, especially since we also won it three years ago for our logistics schemes. For those of us who work in the planning department, it’s a great reward and confirmation that our approach is relevant and recognised as such.”
