The application deadline has been extended for two categories of the CIVITAS Awards 2018. Towns and cities now have until 31 July 2018 to submit entries for two of Europe’s most prestigious prizes for clean urban transport.
This annual event brings together the CIVITAS community from across Europe: hundreds of mobility experts, actors and stakeholders, all of whom are devoted to the development of sustainable urban mobility in their cities. The 16th edition of the CIVITAS Forum Conference will continue the tradition of offering state-of-the-art presentations, interactive workshops and sessions, interesting site visits, and new innovative elements in the programme. The city of Umeå, one of Sweden’s leading examples in sustainable urban development, was chosen to host the CIVITAS Forum 2018 because of its remarkable mobility achievement and active involvement in the CIVITAS Political Advisory Committee, demonstrating a strong political commitment to sustainable mobility issues and to the CIVITAS Network.
