CIVINET UK & Ireland is a membership network for public authorities in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and other organisations interested in sustainable mobility. The network provides access to the EU CIVITAS approach – a set of over 650 innovative and transferable sustainable urban mobility solutions that have been tried and tested in projects across Europe. CIVINET members share good practice in developing, implementing and evaluating sustainable mobility policies and measures. They also engage with national government and the EU about transport policy issues.
