International Transport Forum - 2014 annual summit Transport for a Changing World | 21-23 may 2014 - Leipsig, Germany | France presidency

The word CIVITAS was coined by joining three key components of a modern European society, namely City, Vitality and Sustainability. The initiative was launched in 2002 to redefine transport measures and policies in order to create cleaner, better transport in cities.

Over the last ten years the CIVITAS Initiative has introduced innovation through 800 measures that have already made transport more eco-friendly in over 60 European metropolitan areas, supported  by the intensive exchange of good practices in the field. This exciting project offers a myriad of opportunities for other cities to follow suit.

If you would like to be part of a dynamic network of more than 200 European cities, you can get your city to join CIVITAS and build its own greener future with our support.
