Understand how to govern a city’s sustainable urban development

Develop your understanding of why SUMPS are important for increasing a city’s attractiveness, competitiveness and sustainability.

By the end of the course, you’ll be familiar with the importance of sustainable mobility planning, not as a siloed project, but as an integrated, strategic approach to the overall development of a city.
