MUV at its third CIVITAS Forum

From October 2th to 4th, in the city of Graz (Austria), hundreds of policymakers, city representatives, researchers and practitioners gathered to attend the CIVITAS Forum Conference 2019.

This year’s topic was “Back to the Future” and reveals how intelligently combining advanced technology, people-centric planning, and pedestrian and pedal power is the engine to achieve clean, connected and safe mobility for all. Graz is a leading example to witness this.

Some representative of MUV consortium were present in Graz and contributed to the overall exchange of knowledge.

Karen Soens (MUV Communication manager) talked about gatekeepers & communication design during the session “Inclusive community engagement at the neighbourhood level”, organized together with the “sister projects” funded under the H2020-MG-4.5-2016 call (Cities4People, Metamorphosis, Sunrise).

Salvatore Di Dio (MUV Coordinator) was invited to share some relevant MUV learnings during a workshop organized by the consortium of the Interreg SaMBA project, where he talked about how to encourage citizens to change their behaviours through gamification & how policy makers can gain a better understanding of the user perspective.

Lastly, during the Forum the second international Open Call was launched. Now is the time, to become an urban mobility game-changer! If you want to join the MUVement, you can apply until December 15th.
