Sustainbuilt

The Sustainability in the Built Environment programme is an innovative eight-week learning journey presented by RMIT Europe with RMIT Online. This dynamic initiative is designed to empower individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to drive meaningful change in urban mobility practices.

Learners will spend the first two weeks completing an intensive on the selected specialisation, with the remaining six weeks focused on an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy and project aligned with the learner’s chosen specialisation.

By empowering mobility professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to tackle sustainability challenges, promoting economic growth and job opportunities, and fostering inclusivity and professional development, the project is set to make a meaningful and lasting contribution to the field of urban mobility and its positive impact on the environment and society.

MobilityLead

The EIT Urban Mobility Leadership Programme aspires to be an agent of change in urban mobility by transforming the leadership landscape. It seeks to foster the growth of high-potential leaders within the public sector, equipping them with the skills and perspective to effectively manage and innovate in an increasingly complex landscape.

Emerging leaders, nominated by city mayors (or senior officials depending on the city scale) in cities selected by EIT Urban Mobility, will undertake a six-month development journey.

Each cohort will comprise 8-10 emerging leaders from the public sector (cities and public transport authorities).

DigitMob

The ‘Digitalizing Mobility: Practices, Trends, Solutions’ professional course aims to equip industry stakeholders, such as public transport operators, city entities, policy makers, NGOs and mobility companies, with the insights and understandings required to address the challenges of information communication technologies (ICT) and digitalisation in the transport industry with a cutting edge, innovative mindset. The course aims to foster innovation and new mindsets within industry that will help transport providers and policy makers transition to more sustainable models of transport through digitalisation. The course will offer problem-based training and teaching, providing real-world context from experts in the field, and hands-on experience in individual projects. This framework aims to cultivate creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving skills and an “outside-the-box” lens when addressing the mobility challenges associated with ICT in the transport industry. The main objective of the course is to close the knowledge gap while also promoting effective policies and behavioural change.

The blended format of the course combines online and in-person elements, offering in-depth learning with opportunities for networking and an exchange of ideas. The individual project work stimulates higher engagement through participation and offers a better learning experience, while also creating a significant marketing appeal: the chance to develop their own project, shaped around their own interests, challenges and opportunities for their organisations and cities.

LEZ Courses

Low Emission Zones (LEZs) significantly reduce accidents, pollution, and other negative externalities derived from urban traffic. Moreover, the implementation of LEZs has been mandated by the Climate Change and Energy Transition Law in Spain in 2023.

This project is related to a face-to-face course originally launched in 2021 and scaled in 2022. The aim of the first edition of this course was to provide attendees with the technical knowledge needed to deploy LEZs in municipalities near Barcelona, by learning about existing technologies in the field. In 2021 the course began with an introductory workshop, followed by three face-to-face sessions. It was deemed a success for the target audience, municipalities’ technical staff. Based on the lessons learned from these previous experiences, the third edition is intended to also scale the concept internationally, readapting the course to the Portuguese needs.
