Between the 30th of September and the 2nd of October Brest will welcome the CIVITAS Forum 2013, an annual event bringing together representatives of CIVITAS Forum Network member cities including their politicians and technical experts, and supporting cities to introduce ambitious transport measures and policies towards sustainable urban mobility.
The Brest conference will be the 11th edition of the forum, placing this city alongside several quarters of Europe including Vitoria-Gasteiz, Funchal, Malmö, Krakow, Bologna, Kaunas, Burgos, Nantes, Rotterdam and Graz. Although the series started in 2003, this will be the first time ever that the annual CIVITAS forum is hosted by a non-demonstration city, eager to present its achievements in terms of sustainable urban mobility to the CIVITAS community.
Over the past 20 years, Brest metropolitan area has been involved in a progressive redesign of its mobility system, being proud of the results and solutions found to improve quality of life of its citizens and enhance sustainable transport in the area. Tamara Guirao, CAAC coordinator, has been invited to present the Atlantc Cities’ view in a Pecha Kucha session.
