The presentation will summarise activities in sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) in EU and the Czech Republic and introduce bicycle transportation as a key aspect. Basic principles and methodology of SUMP will be presented in the context of EU member states. In late 2018, Zbyněk visited Australia for two months to gain insights into Australia’s latest practice in urban mobility planning, and to share his experience.
The presentation will provide a fascinating insight into how the rest of the world engages in sustainable urban mobility planning, and Zbyněk will also give his impressions of where Australia is placed in this area.
