Poly-SUMP, Polycentric Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, aims to develop a sustainable mobility planning methodology in polycentric regions – areas characterised by several centres, where services and goods, and therefore transport needs, are scattered in different towns, and mobility is usually car dependent. Planning mobility in these areas is complex, as several municipalities, sometimes even from different countries, and many stakeholders are involved. Poly-SUMP offers a methodology for poly-centric regions to overcome barriers and to build a constructive dialogue among all involved actors in order to reach a common vision and deliver shared action plans for sustainable mobility. Six participating regions in Europe, represented by Regione Marche (Italy), Alentejo Central (Portugal), Central Macedonia (Greece), Central Slovenia (Slovenia), Rhine Alp Region (Austria) and Parkstad Limburg (the Netherlands), test concrete planning processes towards the adoption of mobility plans, and check the transferability of the approach to six other regions in Europe. The approach chosen in Poly-SUMP to mediate between the different actors and fostering a real partnership is based on a proven participatory methodology: Future Search. This method consists in organizing participatory visioning and planning meetings that help people to build up a mutual understanding, to agree upon a common ground and to transform their capability for action very quickly.
