Welcome to the first issue of our REFORM newsletter!
Local authorities experience various mobility problems: pollution, congestion, noise, inefficient traffic systems, etc. The REFORM partners believe that Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) are a part of the answer to these problems and therefore support the implementation and deployment of SUMPs as an instrument for shifting mobility towards low-carbon patterns. The distinctive aspect of REFORM lies in the central role given to regions which can trigger SUMPs’ development process, amplifying the adoption rate by cities and setting a suitable strategic framework, able to overcome the existing barriers and limits.
The REFORM project is a collaborative Interreg Europe Project (January 2017 - December 2020) between four partner regions and three support partners in the European Union.
In this newsletter, you will get introduced to our project and read about one of the four REFORM regions: Parkstad Limburg, in the Netherlands. You will also learn about the opportunities to contribute to the success of REFORM and you will have an insight into the activities of the consortium.
We wish you a pleasant reading!
