SUM Bilbao collaborates with the UN-Habitat’s Urban October and with the MITMA Mobility Strategy

Urban October is an opportunity for everyone to be part of the conversation about the challenges and opportunities created by the fast rate of change in our cities and towns. Each October, everyone interested in sustainable urbanization from national and local governments to universities, NGOs and communities is encouraged to hold or participate in virtual or physical activities, events, and discussions. This year’s Urban October will focus on the climate crisis which is also the theme of UN-Habitat’s campaign  ClimateAction4Cities although activities can be about any aspect of sustainable urbanization.

The Mobility Strategy, developed by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA), aims to guide the actions of the Ministry in matters of mobility, infrastructure and transport in the next 10 years. The initiative aims to respond to the mobility and transport challenges posed by the 21st century. These challenges are marked by changes in the global context, such as the need to decarbonize the economy and respond to climate change, the irruption -many times disruptive- of new technologies and the challenges produced by the increasing concentration of population in large cities. cities. But also due to the need to adapt our activity to the reality of our country: we are no longer the country of the 1980s, marked by a strong infrastructure deficit, but a leading country in its provision of infrastructure.
