The Urban Mobility Days 2022 will be held on 20-22 September in the city of Brno, Czech Republic. Following in the footsteps of previous successful conferences, this year’s theme is “Moving people and goods more sustainably”.

Across two days, policymakers, local authorities, academics, NGOs, urban transport practitioners, and urban planners convene to traverse the length and depth of sustainable urban mobility, examining the challenges and solutions at hand. More than 70% of Europeans live in cities, and urban areas account for around 23% of the EU’s GHG transport emissions. If we are to achieve ambitious climate targets, transforming urban mobility will be critical.

Urban Mobility Days addresses these key challenges. This biennial conference, jointly organised in 2022 by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Mobility & Transport (DG MOVE), and the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU, is a major event in the urban mobility calendar. Having taken place online in 2020 due to COVID-19, we are delighted to welcome delegates in person (with a virtual option available).

Urban Mobility Days provides a unique forum for policymakers, local authorities, academics, NGOs, urban transport practitioners, and urban planners to connect and discuss the way forward for a sustainable, innovative, and equitable future for Europe’s urban mobility.

This year’s programme is set to be as engaging as ever with a series of panel discussions, thematic sessions, exhibitions and side events. Discussions range from boosting active travel to financing climate neutrality to Zero Emission Zones to reinforcing urban nodes on the TEN-T network, and of course SUMPs.

To link the European Commission’s urban mobility initiatives, this year’s conference coincides with European Mobility Week(link is external), which takes place from 16-22 September every year in over 3000 towns and cities in 50 countries worldwide.

As 2022 is the European Year of Youth(link is external), Urban Mobility Days puts the spotlight on young voices and views to involve Europe’s young people on the path towards climate resilience.
