Driving change and innovation in the field of urban mobility takes time. The stakeholder ecosystem is complex and decision making in the public realm often slow. A multitude of innovative solutions, technologies, and tools to work towards sustainable urban mobility already exist, but implementation is taking place at a slow pace. The Urban Mobility Changemaker workshops offer valuable insights into best practices from European cities, academia and practitioners.
The Urban Mobility Changemaker (UMChange) programme consists of four online study tours and co-creation workshops organised in EIT Urban Mobility City Club cities in cooperation with local universities, together with a series of online courses that are highly scalable and can be disseminated among urban mobility and transport planning professionals. The core content of this professional development programme lies in understanding and facilitating organisational change and developing a collective understanding for (retro-)fitting public authorities and private organisations to facilitate sustainable future mobility in different societal and geographic contexts.
The workshop series combines lectures and co-creation sessions focusing on urban mobility solutions and best practice as well as sessions that look at tools and methods that help understand, manage and ideate within the complex stakeholder ecosystem of urban mobility. Furthermore, the workshops take a deep-dive into participatory planning processes, design thinking, change management and innovation leadership.
UMChange is an executive education and professional development programme that acts as a round table for education, networking, co-creationand innovation in the urban mobility sector.
