Umeå:s positive experiences with CIVITAS and how we would like to continue the work!
Comprehensive plan with integrated SUMP – A compact city suitable for bicyclists and pedestrians, 5 km of range – Mixed use to minimize the need for car travel – Maximize the use of the new ring road system - Recreate the city street! – Prioritized main network for Public Transports, gaining high frequencies in areas with high population base – parking strategies for sustainable mobility and sustainable access to the city, reducing commuting traffic – Working with behaviours! Mobility Management
Behavioral aspects Be Green Umeå (Green citizen of Europe, Life+) is one of Umeå municipality's project offices working on sustainability projects. Be green focuses on behavioral influences both within urban sustainable mobility, and sustainable living.
