Eccentric project demonstrating sustainable urban mobility solutions

ICLEI is working on a big demonstration project of sustainable urban mobility solutions: Civitas Eccentric. About 50 mobility measures are being demonstrated in the cities of Madrid, Stockholm, Munich, Turku and Ruse. The Eccentric project focuses on sustainable mobility in suburban districts and innovative urban freight logistics, two important areas that have previously received less attention in urban mobility policies.

The aims of the project are:

  • Demonstrate and test innovative sustainable mobility in peri-central areas, combining new policies, technologies and soft measures.
  • Demonstrate and test innovative urban freight in urban centres, based on a close cooperation with the research and private sectors.
  • Contribute to the knowledge base and capacity building on effective mobility solutions with the goal to replicate solutions in other cities.
  • Increase the impact of ECCENTRIC through communication, networking and promoting the successful commercial concepts developed.

In five living labs, the project demonstrates the potential and replicability of integrated and inclusive urban planning approaches, innovative policies and emerging technologies. Clean vehicles and fuels are being tested, new regulations and services formulated and consolidation solutions developed in close partnerships with the private sector.
