Sustainable mobility is a key goal for city planners as cities increasingly grapple a growing population and climate change issues. However, governing transformation is rather challenging. Not only do we need financially sound processes but we also need to align them with our overall strategy, the legacy of our city and the interests of the city stakeholders.

From a governing perspective, there is a multitude of objectives as well as a wide range of drivers and pressures at play. Therefore, this executive short course focuses on both the structure of governance processes and the enabling proactive roles of transformation.

Our objective is to equip you with methods and tools that help you find and implement new urban mobility solutions to develop more sustainable cities. By the end of this course, you will be familiar with the importance of sustainable mobility governance, not as a siloed project, but as an integrated, strategic approach to overall city development.

The course will address three main areas:

  1. Governing multiple objectives in a city and urban mobility context
  2. Enabling data-driven strategies in sustainable transformation governance
  3. Implementing processes in a multi-stakeholder urban mobility system
