The theme of the Conference was “Sharing the city” with a focus on sustainable urban mobility as an important driver to build an accessible and liveable city for all, as well as to constantly improve the quality of urban life.
The discussions and exchanges of experience on how best sharing the physical and social space of the city will significantly contribute to further define and implement innovative, smart and sustainable mobility solutions in European cities and beyond.
Ljubljana, the host city, is the Slovene capital and an active member of the CIVITAS community since 2003. Ljubljana is perceived as a city made to the measure of man. With 280,000 residents, it is classified as a mid-sized European city, yet it succeeds to preserve the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of smaller towns, while providing all the facilities of a modern, vibrant capital. The Conference took place at the Congress Centre Cankarjev dom, in the heart of the city.
The Final Programme of CIVITAS FORUM 2015 is available online.
The Mayor of Ljubljana Mr Zoran Janković often says that Ljubljana is the most beautiful city in the world and he truly believes it. In the last few years, the city implemented many CIVITAS and other mobility measures, as well as infrastructure projects that increased the quality of life for the inhabitants, with new pedestrian areas, green spaces, riverbanks, bridges and squares closed for motorised traffic.
The significant changes towards sustainability that occurred in a relatively short period has brought Ljubljana the title of European Green Capital 2016, the European Mobility Week 2013 Award and many other prizes.
Mr Zoran Janković thanks all the participants of CIVITAS Conference 2015 for contributing to the success of this year´s Forum.
Experience Ljubljana’s green achievements and share yours with us!
