On 28 November 2017, the CIVITAS PROSPERITY partners City of Katowice and SMG EKSPERT from Krakow (acting as a National Focal Point), organised a seminar on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans within the framework of the CIVITAS PROSPERITY project. As the overall objective of the CIVITAS PROSPERITY project is to support local and national authorities in improving quality and developing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, different local and regional stakeholders from Silesia region were invited for the seminar.

The seminar had a main objective to familiarise participants with the SUMP-concept, as a new, strategic plan and approach, which responds to the needs of urban mobility for a better quality of life, building on existing planning practices, taking into account integration, social participation and evaluation principles.

The seminar was officially opened by Mr Bogumil Sobula, First Vice President of the City of Katowice. Afterwards, the participants of the seminar were able to get acquainted with, among others, the presentation on Katowice's current problems and investment intentions in the field of transport and urban mobility, the methodology and main considerations of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning, assumptions of the so-called Mobility Plans for companies and institutions and a summary of the European Mobility Week organised in Poland in 2017. The latter was presented by Ms Maria Perkuszewska, representative of Polish Ministry of Infrastructure, who are also partners in the CIVITAS PROSPERITY project.

In the second part of the seminar, representatives of the Krakow Municipality and the Board of Municipal Infrastructure and Transport in Krakow, talked about the development of modern public transport systems in Krakow, activities for popularisation of cycling and the public bike rental system, as well as mobility of children and youth (based on experiences in the European STARS project).

The seminar was attended mainly by representatives of the Ministry of Infrastructure, local and regional authorities and municipalities, universities and transport operators from the Silesian region.

The next main event to be organised in Katowice, as part of the city's participation in the CIVITAS PROSPERITY project, will be a training course dedicated to representatives of local governments dealing with mobility planning and transport systems, which is planned for 9-12 April 2018.
