International Transport Forum - 2014 annual summit Transport for a Changing World | 21-23 may 2014 - Leipsig, Germany | France presidency

The word CIVITAS was coined by joining three key components of a modern European society, namely City, Vitality and Sustainability. The EU co-funded initiative was launched in 2002 to redefine transport measures and policies in order to create cleaner, better transport in cities.

More specifically, it has helped develop safe and eco-friendly transport in over 60 demonstration cities, testing more than 700 measures and urban transport solutions, supported by the intensive exchange of good practices in the field.

The demonstration cities are part of the larger CIVITAS Forum network, an active community comprising almost 200 cities committed to implementing and integrating sustainable urban mobility measures.

If you would like to be a part of this exciting community pioneering clean urban transport in Europe and beyond, you can get your city to join CIVITAS and build its own greener future with our support.
